On this day in 1907, formed by the combination of Oklahoma Territory and Indian Territory, Oklahoma was the 46th state to enter the Union. The name Oklahoma comes from the Choctaw phrase okla humma, literally meaning red people. Equivalent to the English word Indian, okla humma was a phrase in the Choctaw language used to describe the Native American race as a whole. Oklahoma later became the de facto name for Oklahoma Territory, and it was officially approved in 1890.
