The state of Oklahoma, with a greater population of Native Americans per capita than any other state in the United States, is currently home to 38 different tribal governments. Formerly known as Indian Native American Tribes, it does not have a true reservation system although it has a federally recognized reservation, the Osage Nation Reservation, headquartered in Pawhuska (also known as Osage County).
