Emigrating to Oklahoma in 1828 from Georgia, the first group of Creek Indians settled along the Arkansas, Verdigris and Grand Rivers, a few miles north of present Muskogee, Oklahoma. Broken Arrow takes its name from a community in the tribe's homelands in Georgia. Traditionally, when a community became too big to gather around one campfire, the people divided and a new town would be established. When it came time to find a new town site, a group of Creeks decided on an area they had visited while gathering materials for making arrows. Since they had broken branches from the trees instead of cutting them to make their arrows, they named their new camp Thlikachka or Broken Arrow.
Broken Arrow has Pride, Spirit, Tigers, Eagles, Wolf Cubs, Panthers and more.
