The State of Sequoyah

For centuries Native Americans had been forced from their lands in the east and were told that eventually they would have a place out west where they could live in peace and call their own. After years of broken promises the tribes in Indian Territory decided the best way to preserve their way of life was to become a state. In the State of Sequoyah, Back in Time takes you to 1905 when Oklahoma almost became two separate states.
