The residents of Oklahoma are also known as ‘sooners’. This name comes from the period around 1889 when the famous Land Run took place. Although they had to officially wait to get a piece of land, people in Oklahoma were a lot quicker to claim land. You can still see the name in the sports teams of the state.
