This is a very large, historically significant map showing the newly created Oklahoma Territory (1889). This is possibly the only government map showing the Oklahoma and Indian territories together. Both would clamor for admission to statehood. The Dawes Commission would abolish Indian land titles subsequently, which led to eventual statehood for the Oklahoma Territory alone. There is documentary backup for the Indian titles in each of the tribal areas and marginal notes with historical information on the various Indian Lands. Lower right box lists the railroads authorized to operate in Indian Territory. Publication: 11th Census of the U.S.: Report of Indians Taxed and Indians Not Taxed.
