ⓘ Quapaw Indian Agency

The Quapaw Indian Agency was a territory that included parts of the present-day Oklahoma counties of Ottawa and Delaware. Established in the late 1830s as part of lands allocated to the Cherokee Nation, this area was later leased by the federal government and known as the Leased District. The area that became known as the Quapaw Agency Lands contained 220.000 acres and was located in the northeastern corner of Oklahoma where that state adjoins Missouri and Kansas.

After the Civil war, the Cherokee were forced to cede land and we appointed it with several other tribes. This area was inhabited until 1874 24 Indian groups. They range from full Indian tribes, until the remnants of several large Indian groups whose main body had settled elsewhere.

The Agency was disbanded in 1890 by the organic law of Oklahoma, which was intended to extinguish a tribal communal land claims. The land was tied to the Indian territory before the adoption of the Dawes act and the allotment of parcels to individual households. Another Indian reserve, the Indian Agency Miami in Miami, Oklahoma was disbanded at the same time. All native American claims were settled before Oklahomas admission to statehood in the 20th century.
