Of course 1907 is the year Oklahoma attained statehood. 1889 was the year part of the Indian territory was first opened to white settlement, which generated a massive land rush. The division on one of the maps seems to define the eastern domain of the Five Nations before white settlement, the so-called 'Civilized Tribes.' It appears to match the territory of the 'Five Nations', rather than the similar-but-not-identical-borders of the rump Indian territory established after the start of white settlement in the west and the founding of the Oklahoma territory there.
