The Kiowa are a nation of Native Americans who lived mostly in the plains of west Texas, Oklahoma and eastern New Mexico at the time of the arrival of Europeans. Today the Kiowa Tribe is federally recognized, with about 12,000 members living in southwestern Oklahoma.
Oklahoma is a state located in the south-central region of the United States of America. Its nickname is the "Sooner State", and is part of a region commonly known as the American "Heartland." Oklahoma City is the state's capital and largest city. However, since Oklahoma is near the geographic center of the U.S., the regional influences add to Oklahoma's unique character.
Oklahoma became the 46th state in the Union on November 16, 1907. The state’s name comes from the Choctaw words okla meaning people and homa meaning red, literally meaning “red people”.
