Miami, Oklahoma was first known as Jimtown, because there were four men with that name in the emerging community. However, when its post office was established in 1890 by Jim Palmer, the town was renamed in honor of his wife, a Miami Indian. As the first chartered town in Indian Territory, severan Native American tribes still make their home in the area, including the Miami, Modoc, Ottawa, Peoria, Seneca-Cayuga, Wyandotte, Quapaw, Eastern Shawnee and Loyal Shawnee.
