    • How Indiana Got Its Name
      • In the 1780s, when Kentucky was being settled, the land there was nearly empty of Native Americans. The native tribes lived on the north side of the Ohio River and used Kentucky for a hunting ground. Because there were so many tribes on the north bank, the settlers in Kentucky referred to the north bank as the land of the Indians, which eventually developed into Indiana. It was adopted by the federal government as the official name of the territory in May of 1800 when the Indiana Territory was established. And became the name of the state in 1816 after a short debate at the state constitutional convention.
