    The Choctaw Gift to the Starving Irish

    I’m writing this on St. Patrick’s Day as I recall a visit I made last year to the Ireland’s Great Hunger Museum in Hamden, CT. In one corner there is a work of art made out of a 3000-year-old peat bog oak by Irish artist Kieran Tuohy. It shows a number of hands upraised; in their midst there are forms of humans. It was created in 2005 and entitled “Thank You to the Choctaw”.
