1. Choctaw Nation Marker
Inscription.  In treaties with the United States in 1820 and 1825, the Choctaws agreed to move from Mississippi and Alabama to a new domain in Indian Territory. After a series of treaties and agreements between the Choctaws, the United States, and the Chickasaw Nation, the Choctaw Nation was bounded by the Chickasaw Nation on the west, the Canadian River on the north, the Arkansas border on the east, and the Red River on the south.

The capital was established at Tuskahoma in present-day Pushmataha County in 1834. The Choctaw Nation endured until the creation of the state of Oklahoma in 1907 and was reorganized in 1934 as the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma.
