    This is great, Ojibwa.  When I teach the second half of the US survey, I use the presidential electoral vote maps to watch what happened to "Indian Territory" and I was never sure about the partition that created Oklahoma in part of it (violating the part of the Indian Removal Act(1830) that said they'd hold the land west of the Mississippi "forever").  Now I know it was part of the Anglonormative events that produced the Dawes Act.

    All it takes is security in your own civil rights to make you complacent.
