奧克拉荷馬源自兩個巧克陶族(Choctaw)印第安字,一為代表「人」的okla,另一個則是代表「紅」的humma1889年時,國會開放了2百萬畝地讓白人移民定居(本來這塊土地只開放給那些被迫離開既有家鄉的美國原住民居住),但少部分土地早就已經有人捷足先登了。這些被稱為「捷足者」(Sooner)的移民,早在這片土地正式開放殖民前,就已經宣示土地的所有權。奧克拉荷馬於1907年加入聯邦,成為美國的第46州。它有一容易記得名字的首府:奧克拉荷馬市(Oklahoma City)它的州花是在冬季節日時,人們喜愛站在下方親吻的槲寄生。


The name Oklahoma comes from two Choctaw Indian words, okla, which means "people," and humma, which means "red." In 1889, Congress opened up 2 million acres for white settlement (it was previously open only to Native Americans who were forced to leave their homelands), and the first of a number of land runs began. Some of the state's settlers were called "Sooners" because they had already staked their land claims before the land was officially opened for settlement. Oklahoma was admitted as the 46th state in 1907. Oklahoma's capital is an easy one to remember--Oklahoma City. The state flower is the mistletoe, a favorite for kissing under during the winter holidays.
