“State of Sequoyah”
For centuries Native Americans had been forced from their lands in the east and were told that eventually they would have a place out west where they could live in peace and call their own. After years of broken promises the tribes in Indian Territory decided the best way to preserve their way of life was to become a state.
The Indians wanted a state they could govern themselves and they called it “Sequoyah.” Some of the men fighting to make Indian Territory a separate state would become the most famous names in Oklahoma history. But powerful politicians, boomers and railroad interests joined forces to make sure the twin territories would become one state.
Join OETA’s history series as we go Back in Time to see the struggle to establish the State of Sequoyah.
