The Native American Presence
Anyone who checks this souvenir from United States is sure to recognize that the Oklahoma seal was designed with care and affection. There's just so much to look at when one encounters this visually engrossing symbol of Oklahoma pride. This is certainly largely in part due to the major presence of civilized tribes in the state, all of which hold their own traditions and observances that are worthy of note and great respect. For this reason, the seal appears to try to marry patriotism with culture, both from the Native American and American perspectives.

It is no wonder as the state was the route followed by many nations for thousands of years. As a consequence, more than 25 languages are spoken in Oklahoma.

Today, the state boasts a diverse population which includes a growing African American community. To know more about the interesting history of this state stop by some of its museums.
