Chahta' Ogham (᚛ᚎᚐᚆᚈᚐᚇ᚜)

Chahta' Ogham is a way to write Choctaw with the Ogham alphabet devised by Lenny Bright. Choctaw is a Western Muskogean language spoken mainly in Oklahoma in the USA. In 1847 during the potato famine in Ireland, the Choctaw people, inspite of their own meagre resources, raised money and sent it to a famine relief organization to help the Irish [More information]. Lenny thought this adaptation would be a nice gift for the Choctaw.
