Not reservations as such, but there are tribal boundaries that last to this
day.  Osage County/Nation isn't the only one.  Heck, just drive around
Tulsa, and you'll see "Entering the Cherokee/Muscogee (Creek)/Osage Nation"
signs bisecting the city into thirds centered roughly at the
244/412/51/LL/64 (and there's probably 546732469 other refs I'm omitting)
interchange in downtown.  Several smaller nations are in the
Kansas/Missouri corner.  The Choctaw Nation dominates the Ouachitas.  And
yeah, the Osage got truly hosed...
