Eight deserving Oklahomans will be inducted into the Oklahoma Hall of Fame this month. We're highlighting them all one by one. Up next: Chief Allen Wright/Kiliahote. Allen Wright, whose Choctaw name was Kiliahote, was born in Attala County, Mississippi in 1826. Following the Treaty of Dancing Rabbit Creek, which forced the removal of the Choctaw, he immigrated to Indian Territory, settling near present-day Lukfata, Oklahoma. At age 13, Wright relocated to Boggy Depot, making it home for the remainder of his life. Wright served as Chief of the Choctaw Nation from 1866 to 1870 and was an accomplished civic and religious leader. He made a significant impact on the Choctaw Nation post-Trail of Tears, post-Civil War and prior to Oklahoma's statehood. He is best known for suggesting the name Oklahoma for the new territory during his role as lead negotiator of the Choctaw-Chickasaw Treaty of 1866. His other accomplishments include translating portions of the BIble from Hebrew to Choctaw and the creation of the Choctaw dictionary, Chahta Lexicon, for use in the tribal school system. Learning was a lifelong passion for Wright, who earned both bachelor's and master's degrees in the 1850's — remarkable accomplishments for the times, especially considering he did not begin his formal education until age 14. Throughout his life, he used his intellectual and leadership gifts for the advancement of his people. Welcome to the Oklahoma Hall of Fame, Chief Wright/Kiliahote. The 2019 Oklahoma Hall of Fame Banquet & Induction ceremony will take place Thursday, Nov. 21, at the Cox Convention Center in OKC. We will be streaming it LIVE on Facebook!
