Biography: 

The only native American character mentioned in Flags in the Dust, this "Choctaw woman" gave Will Falls' grandmother the recipe for an ointment "nigh a hundred and thutty years ago" (227). That would be around 1790, at which time the Choctaw was one of the major tribes living in the southeastern U.S, including Mississippi. Most of the tribe was "removed" to Oklahoma via the Trail of Tears in the 1830s, but a small number were allowed to remain in Mississippi.
