Includes Bill #15 ..."We...ralizing that the Indians of the Five Civilized Tribes...must soon discontinue their tribal relations and assume the responsibilities of the United States citizenship, and believe that the Indians would be better satisfied with their new surroundings if permitted to have a hand in shaping the policy of the government that succeeds their tribal government, and knowing that they would have more influence in the organization of a state formed out of the Indian Territory than they would if a state were formed by the union of Indian Territory and Oklahoma, hereby adopt the recommendation of the chief executives of the Five Civilized Tribes, issued in convention at Eufaula, Indian Territory, May 21, 1903, and ask all worthy outside agencies to assist us in having the United States government give us a state independent of Oklahoma."
