The Choctaw Nation agreed to cede its rich cotton lands east of the Mississippi with the signing of the Treaty of Doak’s Stand in 1820. In return, they received around 13 million acres in southeastern Oklahoma. The majority of Choctaw families remained in their ancestral homelands until the Indian Removal Act of 1830.
NORMAN — The Inter-Tribal Council of the Five Civilized Tribes passed a resolution in support of the Chickasaw and Choctaw nations as they face off with the state over water rights in southeast Oklahoma, the second tribal council to do so in the past several weeks. The council, meeting together for the first time in six years, passed the resolution and four others at the end of the two-hour session, drawing loud applause from the audience.
