Sasakwa, Oklahoma was the Capitol of the Seminole Indian nation. The Seminoles were one of the five civilized tribes that were moved from Florida to Oklahoma in the late 19th century. They were settled on the north banks of the Canadian river, and Sasakwa became an Indian settlement. At that time it was the Seminole capitol, with Govenor John Brown, the most famous of the Seminole governors. He built a large house about 3 miles west of the town. It is fondly remembered by natives of Sasakwa as "Governor Brown's mansion." There are many Indian artifacts to be found around Sasakwa, if one is willing to work at the search.
