Osage County is the largest county in the U.S. state of Oklahoma. Coterminous with the Osage Indian Reservation, it is the home of the federally recognized Osage Nation. As of 2000, the population was 44,437. Its county seat is Pawhuska.[1]

It is the setting of Oklahoma native Tracy Letts' play, August: Osage County (2007), which won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and a Tony Award in 2008.



According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 2,304 square miles (5,967 km²), of which 2,251 square miles (5,830 km²) is land and 53 square miles (137 km²) (2.30%) is water. It is the most populous and the second-largest geographically (to Corson County, South Dakota) of the six U.S. counties that lie entirely within an Indian reservation. (The six counties in descending order of area are Corson County; Osage County; Shannon County, South Dakota; Todd County, South Dakota; Sioux County, North Dakota; and Mahnomen County, Minnesota.) Three other counties, Thurston County, Nebraska; Dewey County, South Dakota and Ziebach County, South Dakota, lie entirely in parts of two separate Indian reservations, for a total of nine counties that lie entirely within reservation territory. Dewey County is also slightly larger than Osage County in area.
