Alternative Histories of the Old Indian Territory John Milton Oskison’s Outlaw Hypotheses Jenna Hunnef Th e tacit or explicit criminalization of indigeneity by the set- tler colonial state has been subject to consistent scrutiny in In- digenous North American literatures since at least the early nine- teenth century. In what is currently the United States this thematic preoccupation transcends geographic and temporal boundaries, being palpable in Indigenous literatures from coast to coast (and beyond) throughout the nineteenth, twentieth, and twenty- fi rst centuries, including, to name just a few examples, William Apess’s Indian Nullifi cation of the Unconstitutional Laws of Massachusetts (1835), Zitkala- Ša’s “Th e Soft- Hearted Sioux” (1901), R. Lynn Riggs’s plays Th e Cherokee Night (1930) and Th e Year of Pílar (1938), D’Ar- cy McNickle’s novels Th e Surrounded (1936) and Wind from an En- emy Sky (1978), and Louise Erdrich’s Th e Round House (2012)— to say nothing of similar concerns expressed by Indigenous writers in other settler colonial contexts, including Canada, Australia, and Aotearoa/New Zealand. Central to these texts, and many more like them, is the historical mediation of tribal sovereignty, legal juris- diction, dispossession from the land, and the relativity of crime
