Wallis Wallis     around 1860

The Choctaw Indian, Wallis Wallis, lived around 1860. He lived in the "Indian Territory", now Oklahoma. Wallis was obviously greatly influenced by the Christian missionaries, and by the biblical story of the Jordan river, and a chariot taking the prophet Elijah up to heaven. He composed the song "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot". The song was heard by a minister at a Choctaw boarding school, who wrote down the tune and the words. He sent this music to an American university choir, who sang the song and made it popular on tours of USA and then Europe.
