... Over 25 Native-American languages are spoken in Oklahoma.
Oklahoma is a natural gas and oil giant with a diverse people and economy. Over 3.9 million people call Oklahoma home, and the median household income is $50,051, putting it firmly in 43rd place. The state was home to multiple indigenous peoples, including the Wichita, Teyas, Escanjaques, Tawakoni, Caddo, Plains Apache, Cherokee, Osage, Quapaw, and Choctaw people. This is partially why so many Native American languages are still spoken in Oklahoma.
Major employers of Oklahoma include ONEOK, Williams Companies, Chesapeake Energy Corporation, SandRidge Energy, American Airlines, QuikTrip, Hobby Lobby, Love’s Travel Stops & Country Stores, and many more. While the state is well known for oil and natural gas drilling, the economy has continued to diversify into professional and financial services, retail, tourism, and technology.
The Medieval Fair of Norman is a fun cultural event that is the first medieval fair of Oklahoma and brings fun, food, music, jousting, and other bits of medieval history and fun. The Tulsa State Fair is another great annual event that brings over a million people to the fairgrounds.
