PONTOTOC COUNTY OKLAHOMA HISTORY

Pontotoc County. The name "Pontotoc" has an important place in the history of the Chickasaws. It was originally that of a creek in Northern Mississippi, near which the Chickasaw council-house was located. The well known Treaty of Pontotoc, providing for the sale of all the Chickasaw lands in the East, was negotiated at that point. The name itself is from the Chickasaw words panti meaning "cattail flag" and oktak meaning "prairie." It is suggested that the name may have referred to some well known place along its course where the creek flowed through a marshy prairie in which the cattail flag grew.

When provisions were made during the Constitutional Convention for the organization of counties in Oklahoma, in 1907, a portion of the former Pontotoc County, Chickasaw Nation, was designated as Pontotoc County, thus perpetuating the name in the state.
