it would depend which area was referenced.

a possible quick answer would be to contact the oklahoma historical society.

you should think of the “choctaw nation” as a location in this reference.

oklahoma became a state in 1907. before that time, the area was known as indian territory. forts administered government services. the forts were located in different areas.
