By statehood in 1907, all Indian reservations in Oklahoma were abolished. But in the Supreme Court’s McGirt decision in 2020, the Creek reservation is still, at least for criminal law purposes, a reservation.

Now, a ruling from the Oklahoma Court of Criminal Appeals has it that three more reservations exist in Oklahoma.
