KEY Oklahoma City

CULTURAL TOURISM

Oklahoma City’s unique history has made for a rich, colorful and outright exuberant heritage that locals delight in sharing. Explore a past that spans Native Americans, oil and cattle barons, cowboys and pioneers of jazz - all in a setting that remains remarkably pure and unspoiled.

Oklahoma has a deep-rooted Native American history. In fact the name Oklahoma was derived from two Choctaw Indian words: okla meaning "people" and humma meaning "red." Visitors can taste cowboy life and campfire coffee at a variety of rodeos, guest ranches, trail rides and chuck wagon feeds and find Native American art galleries, historic sites, powwows, dances and festivals, including the largest Native American festival in the world-Red Earth held every June in Oklahoma City

Oklahoma's rich African-American heritage once produced more all-black towns than the rest of the nation combined ... and a sound the rest of the nation envied. It was jazz. A proud legacy that fostered world-class greats lives on in Oklahoma City. The Black Liberated Arts Center showcases the African American culture that can be experienced through celebrations, arts and cuisine.

Oklahoma City is a place where time-honored traditions, cultural experiences and artistic expressions are components of everyday life.
