Oklahoma

Postcard courtesy of Faith Christian School

HELLO, from the Great State of OKLAHOMA! We are 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th graders at Faith Christian School in Atoka, Oklahoma. Atoka is a small community of about 3,000. It was a stop on the Butterfield Overland Stage Road, the route followed when mail service began between Missouri and San Francisco in 1857. On November 16, 1907, Oklahoma became the 46th state. The name "Oklahoma" comes from the Choctaw words: "okla" meaning people and "humma" meaning red, so the state's name literally means "red people".
God bless you!!

Caption: Black Kettle National Grassland has about 30,724 acres located near Cheyenne, Oklahoma. The grasslands provide valuable feed to local ranchers so it is common to see cattle grazing when visiting the grasslands.
