Oklahoma City in Oklahoma County, Oklahoma — The American South (West South Central)
Kiowa, Comanche and Apache Reservation
The Red River Journey
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.
