A Native American community severely impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak has received an outpour of donations from Irish people, who are returning a historic favor from 173 years ago.

In 1847, the Native American Choctaw nation sent $170 ($5,000 today) of relief aid to the Irish people impacted by the great potato famine. Now, the Irish are reciprocating the act of goodwill by donating funds to the Navajo nation, which has been severely impacted by COVID-19, with at least 2,373 cases and 73 deaths as of May 3.

  1. This makes me happy, Keith, as I’m a Celt with some Native American, I always have full solidarity with the Native Americans & the Celts along with the Japanese, Chinese, etc.
    Plus, there should be ABSOLUTELY ZERO support for Israel period, claims about North Korea being the world’s most evil country is a totally complete lie, and the real truth is that the most EVIL COUNTRY IN THE WORLD EVER is always Israel.
    That’s why we should all BOYCOTT ISRAEL AND BUYCOTT ASIA IN GENERAL CULTURALLY!
    Why aren’t you responding to most of my recent comments? Is it because you’re too busy? I’m just curious that’s all, & besides, Keith Preston, PEACEFUL ANARCHY FTW!
