About Oklahoma

Oklahoma is part of the West South Central States, along with Arkansas, Louisiana, and Texas. Oklahoma was originally set aside for the exclusive use of the Indians and was called Indian Territory. However, in 1889, the land was opened to settlers in what became known as the "Oklahoma Land Rush." Oklahoma has produced more astronauts than any other state.
