Leo DiCaprio Tours Tar Sands, Joins Natives in ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

(Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky was there as well.) Even though the details of the yet-to-be-made film are vague, Canada’s energy industry wasted no time in blasting DiCaprio.

Love Leo!

What Did a Choctaw Indian Live In?
The Choctaw are a tribe of Native Americans that originally resided in the southern United States in the area that is now Mississippi, Louisiana and Alabama. The Choctaw tribe was the first to travel the “Trail of Tears” and the majority came to reside in Oklahoma. Despite this relocation, the Choctaw still retain a strong cultural identity, and whites and Choctaws alike study their pre-removal lifestyle, including the tribe’s traditional dwellings.
