This chapter explores how sovereignty was articulated during the reform process and in the 2006 Constitution. After exploring what sovereignty means for the Osage most active in the reform process, it describes the ways in which sovereignty was also a space of contention—how non-Osage landowners and the Oklahoma Tax Commission attempted to discredit the Osage Nation and deny indigenous sovereignty, and attempted to reassert their own authority over the territory.
