After the signing of this treaty, the Choctaw people were forced to move from their ancient homelands in Mississippi to the unexplored area of the American West called the Great American Desert. Most of this area became the state of Oklahoma in 1906.
The council ground at Dancing Rabbit Creek lies between two branches of Dancing Rabbit Creek within Noxubee County in what is now the state of Mississippi. A granite monument was placed there in 1928 by the Bernard Romans Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution of Columbus, Mississippi.
The Mississippi band of Choctaw resides on a reservation of 30,000 acres near this site.
