Answer this Oklahoma trivia question to receive awesome prizes!

Test your Oklahoma knowledge and win prizes by answering our weekly Tuesday Trivia question. Every week, we’ll choose a winner from the correct respondents to receive a prize—from an Okie sticker to a subscription to Oklahoma Today and more.

We're big readers at Oklahoma Today, which shouldn't be a surprise considering how much time we spend searching for just the right word to describe what's happening the state we love, so this week's question hits us in a sweet spot.

Oklahoma's first newspaper was published, like many of the state's firsts, before Oklahoma was even a state. The first Oklahoma issue was published September 26, 1844 in Tahlequah in Indian Territory, but it actually was an offshoot of a newspaper that began printing in Georgia twenty years earlier. Among other notable features, Oklahoma's first newspaper was printed in two languages—two pages in English and two pages in Cherokee.

What was the name of the first newspaper published in Oklahoma?
