Founded in 1935, The Krewe of Choctaw had their first parade in 1939, 4 years after the founding of the organization.
Although the krewe took the name of a Native American tribe that inhabited Louisiana, the krewe's roots are in southern government.
The Krewe of Choctaw follows the traditional Uptown route in New Orleans. It rolls on Saturday at 2 pm on the first weekend of the carnival season.
Their 2014 theme was "Choctaw's Vaction Destionations." Keep your hands up to catch plush tomahawks, spears, beads and wooden nickles.
