Notes

Abstract: In 1905 leaders of the Five Civilized Tribes convened to write a constitution for the proposed State of Sequoyah, a single state separate form Oklahoma Territory. The Sequoyah Statehood Convention garnered national attention but historians generally have provide no detailed study of its work. Richard Mize combs the pages of the Muskogee Daily Phoenix to reconstruct the historic convention and to shed light on the interpretation the newspaper's white editor gave to the proceedings.
