On July 9, 2020, in a 5–4 decision, the U.S. Supreme Court held that the boundaries of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation reservation, as defined in its 1866 treaty with the United States, remain intact. Overnight, the Creek Reservation was recognized to be 3.25 million acres; the entire area is “Indian Country,” as defined by federal law. Consequently, one million Oklahomans found out they live on an Indian reservation, including 400,000 people in the city of Tulsa. Now, Oklahoma will have to face the situation of Creek Nation jurisdiction over an enormously larger expanse of land than had been previously assumed. This case has enormous implications that will involve the Muscogee (Creek) Nation and other tribes in Oklahoma, and perhaps across the country, in future negotiations, litigation, and potential legislative efforts to address the issues that will arise. McGirt is probably the most significant Indian law case in well over one hundred years.
