I always understood that the "indian buck" mentioned in the emigrant song "By the Hush" was the same "yellow male" formerly imported as animal feed and eventually offered to the starving Irish populace as famine relief. Thomas Keneally's book "Three Famines: Starvation and Politics" mentions both terms.
