Immigrants seeking to become citizens often applied at a U.S. District Court or a district court at a county courthouse. You can obtain copies of declarations, certificates, and other records by contacting the clerk's office in the county. Contact details for Oklahoma county courts can be found on http://www.genealogy.com/00000265.html.  The Family History Library has microfilm copies from some counties.
