History of Oklahoma
Long before the appearance of “pale-faced” colonists, American Indian tribes lived on the lands of the modern state of Oklahoma .
Around 800 AD, the first settlements of the Caddo (Caddo) people, then part of the Indian “Mississippi culture” (also known as “mound builders”), appeared in eastern Oklahoma. The Spirow Mounds are considered the westernmost monuments of this fairly advanced civilization based on agriculture and stable trade relations that have survived to this day.
In the west of the state lived the Wichita Indians, who were engaged in both agriculture and hunting. In the middle of the last millennium, the Apache, Kiowa, and Comanche tribes moved from the north to the plains of Oklahoma.
The first European on the lands of Oklahoma was the Spanish conquistador Francisco de Coronado, whose expedition also passed in 1540-1542 through the territory of the modern states of Arizona, New Mexico, Texas and Kansas.
Since the end of the XVII century, the eastern part of Oklahoma was part of the French colony of Louisiana, in 1803 sold by Napoleon to the United States of America. The western lands were part of the colony of New Spain, and later of the Republic of Texas. They became American only in 1845 after the annexation of Texas. Nevertheless, there were practically no white settlers in Oklahoma until the 1980s.
In 1830, the US Congress passed a law according to which the Indian peoples living east of the Mississippi River were to be evicted to the western, at that time still undeveloped lands. Many Indians were forced to move to the newly created “Indian Territory”, of which Oklahoma became a part. The sad story of the migration of the “five civilized tribes” who lived in the southeastern United States: Choctaw, Cherokee, Creek, Chickasaw and Seminole is best known. The “Road of Tears” was the name given by the Indians to their long journey to the west, during which thousands of people died. In the following decades, Indians from the states of the Northeast and Midwest of the United States were evicted to Oklahoma. (Shoney, Lenape, Miami, Juice, Fox, Ottawa, Kickapoo, Ponca, Osage, Oto, Missouri and others). By 1860, over 50,000 Indians, over 8,000 black slaves, and only about 3,000 Europeans lived on Oklahoma lands. Today, Oklahoma ranks second (after California) in the United States in terms of the number of indigenous people living in the state.
