https://digitalcommons.law.ou.edu/cgi/viewcontent.cgi?article=2927&context=indianserialset This is the most comprehensive discussion contemporary to the events surrounding the Neutral lands I have come across.

A pre-war NYT article that is quite lengthy discussing the neutral lands is here:

An article about Southern Cherokee's in Kansas and the war with several good maps. I think the strip that is being referred to in the raid accounts may be marked as the Quapaw Strip on the map on page 3 of this article. It roughly fits with what we know about Blunt's movement chasing Mathews and the fact Mathews had the recruiting order for the Quapaw on him when killed.
