The Otoe Agency was established in 1856 for the Oto and Missouri Indians. When the bulk of the Oto and Missouri Indians moved to Oklahoma Territory in 1881, they were merged into a single agency called the Ponca, Pawnee, and Otoe Agency. Between 1901 and 1904 a separate Otoe Agency was reestablished in what became Oklahoma. It was merged with the Pawnee Agency in 1919. In 1921, the Ponca Agency was reestablished for the Ponca, Tonkawa, and Oto and Missouri Indians. The Otoe Agency continued to operate as a subagency under the Pawnee Agency.
