Inscription.  In 1867, the Comanche, Kiowa, and Apache Indians accepted a reservation of more than three million acres in present-day southwest Oklahoma. Bounded on the west by the North Fork of the Red River and the east by the Chickasaw Nation, many of the Indians fled the reservation, largely in response to shameful treatment by corrupt Indian agents.

The federal government broke up the reservation in 1901 by allotting 160 acres of land to each tribal member. Allotment was carried out despite the possibility of mistranslation, which led to tribal leaders agreeing to allotment, protests from military officers, Indian agents, and Texas ranchers, and a lawsuit against the government by the Kiowa chief Lone Wolf.
