Only in OK Show


Nov 8, 2021

On today's episode of the Only in OK Show, we are taking you to the Otter Cove Diner in Miami, Oklahoma.
 
The Otter Cove Diner & Gift Shop is a new "classic" diner built out of the remains of an historic 1920's Texaco on Main Street in Miami, Oklahoma.  The Ottawa Tribe of Oklahoma has rejuvenated a piece of Route 66 history right next to the RT66 Gateway.  At this diner, you can get a classic diner experience(milkshakes, burgers, and much more), put your favorite song on the jukebox and just enjoy the history and murals.
 
Miami was founded in 1891. Lead and zinc mining established by 1918, caused it to boom. It is the capital of the Miami Tribe of Oklahoma, after which it is named, the Modoc Tribe of Oklahoma, the Ottawa Tribe of Oklahoma, the Peoria Tribe of Indians and the Shawnee.
 
The Ottawa Tribe of Oklahoma is made up of descendants of the Ottawa who migrated from Canada.  The name “Ottawa” is from the Indian word “adawe” meaning to trade. This name was appropriate because of the extensive trading with other tribes and their eventual involvement with the French.
 
We also discuss the OSU's launch of Oklahoma Aerospace Institute for Research and Education.
