Chief Joseph's Band of Nez Perce, Tonkawa

History

The Oakland Agency was located near the Ponca Reservation in Oklahoma and was the superevising agency for Chief Joseph's Band of Nez Perce from 1879 to 1885, following the Nez Perce War. When the Nez Perce moved out, a group of Tonkawa Indians moved in and the name of the agency was changed to the Ponca, Pawnee, Otoe, and Oakland Agency. A separate Oakland Agency was reestablished about 1901 and was merged with the Ponca Agency in 1921[1].
