Founded in Algiers in 1935, but now parading on the Uptown route, Choctaw carries out its Native American theme by calling its king, “Chief,” and its queen, “Princess.”  The krewe’s web site sums it all up by describing the parade’s purpose as promoting good fellowship, contributing to civic good, encouraging charity and keeping alive the great spirit of Mardi Gras.  It’s run by a group with a name that says it all, too – the Old Reliable Pleasure Club.
