Oklahoma, a Choctaw word meaning “red people,” has the second largest American Indian population in the United States.
Not surprisingly, many of Oklahoma’s Indians are talented writers:
N. Scott Momaday, a member of the Kiowa tribe
Alex Posey, a member of the Creek tribe
Lynn Riggs, a member of the Cherokee tribe
Muriel Wright, a member of the Choctaw tribe
