This map of Native American (American Indian)s in Oklahoma documents the areas and locations of documented Native American (American Indian) reservations and tribal jurisdictions in what is now known as the state of Oklahoma. This map is a visual reminder of what the people who called this land home, were left with in the post-European contact world. To Native Americans and Indigenous Peoples, this land will always be our ancestral homeland.
Note: This map has been updated due to the McGirt vs. Oklahoma Supreme Court ruling. Oklahoma now has 6 official Native American (American Indian)s . The Court asserted that the reservations of the Creek, Choctaw, Cherokee, Seminole and Chickasaw were never legally dissolved. Jurisdiction over legal matters within the jurisdictions of these Tribe's reservations has been modified to allow Tribe's more sovereignty within their boundaries. Officially, there are 39 Tribes within Oklahoma, and descendants of well over 100 Tribes.
McGirt v. Oklahoma (2020) was a landmark United States Supreme Court case which ruled that, as pertaining to the Major Crimes Act, much of the eastern portion of the state of Oklahoma remains as Native American lands of the prior Native American (American Indian)s of the Five Civilized Tribes, never disestablished by Congress as part of the Oklahoma Enabling Act of 1906.
Tribal Nations Maps & Indigenous Peoples Resources acknowledges this landmark case, and applauds the Court's decision. Therefore, we have updated our maps.
