The word Choctaw refers to the Native American people who were a part of the Muskogean linguist group and inhabited the central and southern Mississippi and also the south-western part of Alabama. But presently they are confined in Mississippi and south-eastern part of Oklahoma. The word also refers to the language that was used by those people.

In contrast to many other groups of the American Indian tribes of that time the Choctaw were known as one of the five civilised tribes because they had imbued into themselves the numerous cultural and technological practices that the European American used. They also had the distinction of being extremely generous as it was they who provided famine relief to the people affected by the Irish Potato Famine.
