Bracketing the Dates of this Map is as follows : Post 1867, because Both Canada became known as the "Dominion of Canada" and "Nebraska" became a State in 1867 . These two factors are shown.
The Indian Territory was gradually reduced to what is now Oklahoma with the organization of Oklahoma Territory in 1890, to just the eastern half of the area. The citizens of Indian Territory tried, in 1905, to gain admission to the union as the State of Sequoyah, but were rebuffed by Congress and an Administration which did not want two new Western states, Sequoyah and Oklahoma. Citizens then joined to seek admission of a single state to the Union. With Oklahoma Statehood in November 1907, the "Indian Territory" was extinguished.
Final results are the beginning of Joint "Oklahoma / Indian Territory" in 1890, and it's Single Enlarged Statehood ending it's 2 parts 1907.
