Indian Territory,was made up of all Reservations, of 62 indian tribes, Vinita was not Cherokee Revervation, there is Indian Territory census. All indian was moved here by the gorvement, Cherokee was just the first. All indians had rolls no. till 1902 by law. They got land ,food,and if they did not asker to the roll nu. the goverment sent the soldiers to get them dead or alive. Rolls nu. was not a good thing back then.
