Biographical / Historical

In the late 1800s, the Osage Nation, having been forced to move into Indian Territory, utilized a section of the land the US government assigned them by renting sections to white cattle ranchers. The nearly 100,000 acre area was split into leased sections that ranchers could use as grazing lands. The photograph in this collection depicts a cattle round-up on one of the rented land sections.
