Native American Tribal Facts

The name "Oklahoma" comes from the Choctaw words: "okla" meaning red and "humma" meaning people, so the state's name literally means "red people."

There are over 565 Federally-recognized Indian tribal entities eligible to receive services from the United States Bureau of Indian Affairs.

Oklahoma has the largest American Indian population of any state. Many of the 255,000 American Indians living in Oklahoma are descendents from the original 67 tribes inhabiting Indian Territory.

Thirty-nine of the American Indian tribes currently living in Oklahoma are headquartered in the state.

Twelve Native American Tribes are represented in the Indian Education Program at Crescent Public Schools.
