 Oklahoma

     The name "Oklahoma" comes from the Choctaw words: "okla" meaning people and "humma" meaning red. With the discovery of oil, people came from all parts of the world to Oklahoma in hopes of striking it rich. The promise of a black paradise brought tens of thousands of former slaves from the South. By the time Oklahoma became the 46th state on November 16, 1907, African Americans outnumbered the Indians. Some who were former slaves of Indians, took part in the runs or accepted their allotments as tribal members. Indians from more than 67 tribes, including the Cherokee, Choctaw, Chickasaw, Creek, Seminole, Osage, Cheyenne, Sac and Fox, Delaware, Apache, and Pawnee, numbering 252,420, call Oklahoma their home today, many are descendants from the original tribes inhabiting Indian Territory.

     Oklahoma is comprised of 77 counties with a land area of 68,667 square miles (50.3 people per square mile). According to 2000 U.S. census data, Oklahoma's population is 3,450,654. Of those, 76.2 percent are white, 7.9 percent American Indian, 7.6 percent African American, 5.2 percent Hispanics, and 1.4 percent Asian. The present day Oklahoma State Flag adopted by the State Legislature in 1925, is Oklahoma's 14th flag.
