Talking Warrior

Comments Off

[Today’s run: 7 miles]

Today’s run took us on Williams Road south of Starkville.

On Williams Road there is a water tower which belongs to a rural water district. On the tower it says, “Talking Warrior Water Association”.

I had been wondering what ‘talking warrior’ meant.

The Sunday Columbus Dispatch has a column by the local historian, Rufus Ward.  One Sunday last January  he mentioned a local Choctaw indian of note  named Talking Warrior.

Talking Warrior signed his ‘X’ on a treaty with the United States.

There is also a Talking Warrior Creek  in the neighborhood of the water association.

So now I know a bit about Talking Warrior.
