HISTORY: Bacone College was founded as Indian University in 1880. The campus was moved from Tahlequah to Muskogee, Oklahoma and was officially renamed in 1910. Bacone College was historically governed by the American Baptist Home Mission Societies, but through charters with five tribes–the United Keetoowah Band of Oklahoma Indians, the Osage Nation, the Otoe-Missouria Tribe, the Cheyenne and Arapaho Tribes of Oklahoma, and the Kiowa Tribe–Bacone College is in the process of transforming into a tribal college.
