Tbe state seal of Oklahoma furnishes an expression of tbe individuality of this new state. In tbe center is a five-pointed star, and in each point of tbe star is tbe symbol of one of tbe five Indian tribes; here is tbe Cbickasba national seal, where in tbe Indian warrior stands up right with bow and shield; tbe Cbocktaw has bis tomahawk, bow and three crossed arrows; tbe Seminole nation is repre sented by a village opposite a lake, wbicb bas afloat on it an Indian paddling bis canoe; tbe Cherokee nation is represented on tbe fifth point of tbe star and is surrounded by a wreath of oak leaves. Tbe Creeks also have their emblem on tbe shield. In each one of tbe indentures of tbe star are groups of nine stars, representing altogether tbe forty-five other stars; while tbe large star in tbe center in dicates tbe new state the forty sixth in tbe Union so that now, as in tbe day of Tecumseb, when tbe Indians referred to the American nation as "my broth ers of tbe thirteen campfires,'' tbe full bloods of Oklahoma can gather about their tepees and look upon tbe great cities and towns and railroads crossing the prairies of old, and think of tbe Great Father now as bay ing "forty-six campfires," in stead of thirteen as in Colonial days.
