OKLAHOMA CITY — Is Oklahoma part of the Midwest, Southwest or southern United States? Ask three different people residing in the Sooner State and you'll get three different answers.
It's a question with no solid answer, and so Oklahoma has taken a little bit of culture from each and made it its own. It's where people say y'all and wave as they pass by in a driving car. It's where you'll still hear references to cowboys and Indians, and where the state meal is made up of chicken-fried steak, fried okra and squash.
