|Choctaw Chief Allen Wright suggested the name
in 1866 during |
treaty negotiations with the federal government regarding the use
of Indian Territory, in which he envisioned an all-Indian state
controlled by the United States Superintendent of Indian Affairs.
Equivalent to the English word Indian, okla humma was a
phrase in the Choctaw language used to describe the Native
American race as a whole. Oklahoma later became the name for
Oklahoma Territory, and it was officially approved in 1890,
two years after the area was opened to white settlers.
Formed by the combination of Oklahoma Territory and Indian
Territory on November 16, 1907, Oklahoma was the 46th state to
enter the union. Its residents are known as Oklahomans, and
its capital and largest city is Oklahoma City. The state has 77 counties.
