Nanih Waiya Indian Mennonite Church

Nanih Waiya Indian Mennonite Church was a congregation of Choctaw Mennonites in Neshoba County that suffered three bombings between September 1964 and December 1966.  The bombings took place against the backdrop of the Freedom Summer murders of James Chaney, Andrew Goodman, and Michael Schwerner in June 1964. There were never any arrests in the church bombings, which apparently were not a priority for local law enforcement, which included men implicated in the Freedom Summer murders.
