My wife and I are relocating from California to Oklahoma City area in May. We were out on a house hunting trip last week and liked country feel of the Choctaw area. I would appreciate it if anyone could give me some insight.

Thanks

Just to get the discussion going- you might try YouTube. Sometimes there are videos about the area made by local residents. Try the [domain blocked due to spam] website as well. They have a message board for many towns. It's gives you the local flavor sometimes. Sorry I'm not more helpful.

Hello everybody, found out that my grandmother was telling the truth saying I have Indian in my blood.But I am heartbroken because I may have to hire a genealogist to prove I AM part of the "FAMILY" I use quotes after speaking to one EXTREMELY RUDE gal that works for the Mississippi Band. But I promise whatever direction my ancestors send me to bring closure for my family by becoming tribally recognized I will succeed.

I think it can be very hard to become a member of a tribe, if you are not registered as a child. If they won't recognize you, remember your blood is still your blood, & thye can't change what you already are, over a document.

It's not that hard, but you have to prove linage to someone on the Dawes Rolls. Birth records and the like showing your relation to a person the rolls or to an already enrolled tribal member.

I guess it will vary by tribe.

The Choctaw tribal HQ in Oklahoma is Tuskahomma, OK. The best areas to live are Wilburton, Red Oak, Wister, Talihina, and Broken Bow. Crime is miniscule and only petty for the most part. Stay away from the San Bois mountain area NE of Wilburton. Oklahoma schools are poor, so pick your poison.

I'm thinking the OP was referring to Choctaw, OK (area NE of Oklahoma City) and not the Tribal Headquarters.
