Map of Oklahoma Tribal Statistical Areas

Oklahoma Tribal Statistical Area is a statistical entity identified and delineated by federally recognized American Indian tribes in Oklahoma that formerly had a reservation but do not now have a reservation in that state (an exception being the Osage Nation's retention of mineral rights on their reservation[1]). Often, an OTSA will be that of the former Indian Reservation in Oklahoma. They are usually referred to as Tribal Jurisdictional Areas.[2]
