Description: 

In the Choctaw language, "Oklahoma" means "red people." It was the land to which many of the Indians tribes were sent by the American government during the first half of the 19th century, including the Chickasaws who once lived in Yoknapatawpha. Chick's chronology is faulty when he says that "the last Chickasaw departed for Oklahoma in 1820" (11), but they were all gone before 1840.
