Best and Worst States: Pros and Cons of Living in Oklahoma

The history of human occupation in Oklahoma dates back thousands of years, making it one of the oldest states in the union. About 9500 BCE, people from the Clovis and Folsom cultures were attracted to this land by its plentiful resources. In eastern Oklahoma, people developed exquisite pottery, textiles, sculpture, and metalware around 700 CE. In addition, Mississippian culture members farmed, hunted, fished, and gathered wild foods. Throughout most of southeastern North America, they were connected through trade and communication. A superb example of these people's settlements is the Spiro Mounds site (occupied from about 850 to 1450) (see Southeast Indian).
