English: The term Indian Territory in Native American and United States history has several meanings.
  1. As a generic term, Indian Territory or Indian Country are used to describe an evolving land area set aside by the U.S. Government for the relocation of Native American tribes from their ancestral homelands to land grants in the 'new' western lands of the Louisiana Purchase (1803), purchased from Napoleon.
  2. As a specific term, Indian Territory was an Unorganized territory whose general borders were initially set by the Indian Intercourse Act of 1834. The borders of Indian Territory were reduced in size as the US Congress created Territories for later admission as States. It ceased upon Oklahoma statehood in 1907.
