Cherokee Nation exercises tribal jurisdiction over a 7,000 square-mile reservation in northeastern Oklahoma. This reservation was established more than 180 years ago, when the Cherokee Nation was relocated to Indian Territory. Oklahoma’s 77 counties were established when the territory officially became part of the United States in 1907, many years after the Cherokee Nation’s land base was established. Today, Cherokee Nation’s Reservation encompasses all or parts of 14 Oklahoma counties, including Adair, Cherokee, Craig, Delaware, Mayes, McIntosh, Muskogee, Nowata, Ottawa, Rogers, Sequoyah, Tulsa, Wagoner, and Washington.
