Artist's Description

This is the Canadian River that flows through Oklahoma, the water is reddish in color and as you can see by the bank the color of the soil is also red in color.

The red color of the soil comes from the high iron content that is in the soil, which is not actually soil but red clay. The rivers and lakes have the reddish to pinkish color because of the clay does not settle to the bottom, so with the flowing of water it causes it to be pink in color. If you swim in the lakes and the rivers in a light colored bathing suit, it will turn it pink in color and many times it will remain pink, because it dyes the color into the material.

Oklahoma has a population of approx 3,450,654. More than 500 named creeks and rivers make up Oklahoma’s waterways, and with 200 lakes created by dams, it holds the highest number of artificial reservoirs in the nation.Oklahoma has more man-made lakes than any other state, with over one million surface acres of water and 2,000 more miles of shoreline than the Atlantic and Gulf coasts combined.

Oklahoma has the largest American Indian population of any state. Many of the 252,420 American Indians living in Oklahoma today are descendants from the original 67 tribes inhabiting Indian Territory.

The name “Oklahoma” comes from the Choctaw words: “okla” meaning people and “humma” meaning red, so the state’s name literally means “red people.”
