The delegation made the long journey from Florida, arriving at the proposed lands on the Canadian River, in present-day Oklahoma. The group included six chiefs and Abraham, representing both head chief Micanopy and the Black Seminoles. 

They found the proposed lands colder than expected. But that was only a minor problem. The real difficulty was that the land lay in Creek Country. President Jackson was following through on his order to incorporate the Seminoles with the Creeks.
