Museum Stories: Personal Reminiscence Of ‘The Days of Indian Territory’

By Britt Willis

It was in the year of 1857 that the Chickasaws decided they would prefer to establish their own government separate from the Choctaw Nation. Although they were perfectly willing to hold their own land in common for this privilege, the Chickasaws were willing to pay the sum of $550,000. This did not prohibit the Chickasaws and Choctaws from living in either territory if they desired.

After this agreement was consummated, a committee of Chickasaws and Choctaws met and designed the strip of country that was to be know as the Chickasaw Nation.

How about the beautiful green grass in September? Now that’s nice.

I believe everyone is a little tired of mowing every other day. Fishing has been great and that’s always a plus.
