Catalogue Note

A fine, bright copy of a significant map of the Indian and Oklahoma territories shortly before the former was subsumed by the latter in the quest for statehood. The map describes the areas of land holdings and the populations of the "Five Civilized Tribes" (the Cherokee, Chickasaw, Choctaw, Creek, and Seminole) and details postal routes with frequency of deliveries, military reservations, and proposed railroad lines. Many Native Peoples are also located in the Oklahoma Territory, including the Otoes, Nez Perces, Osages, Comanches and Apaches, Sac and Fox, and Pawnees.

The map was published with a volume of the eleventh census of the United States titled Indians Taxed and Not Taxed, dealing with Statistical and Historical Information from the Census regarding the Indians (Washington: Government Printing Office, 1904).
