Welcome to Oklahoma - at the heart of the USA!
Oklahoma’s original settlers recognised prime land when they saw it-a fine ‘big sky’ place of tallgrass prairie and fertile red earth. ‘Oklahoma’ means ‘red people’ in the Choctaw American Indian language, and today the state is home to no fewer than 39 Native American nations-proud people who hail from all over the North American continent. Vibrant cowboy life-ranching and cattle rearing - is still strong, supporting lively communities, great farm-to-fork food and a diverse live music scene.
