The Creek Indians originally lived in the Alabama and the Southeast USA. In 1830 Andrew Jackson moved them to Northeastern Oklahoma. The Creek named their new towns after their old ones. Most people are not sure, but Broken Arrow probably came from a town back in Alabama so named because the people would break bamboo in two in order to make arrows. Or so the theory goes.
This was similar to how European immigrants named cities in the United States "Bristol," "Dublin," and "New York."
From downtown Tulsa take state highway 51 east. Take 169 to the BA (Broken Arrow) Expressway & turn off on the exit you need to go to. I usually take the 81st Exit & take a left, toward Broken Arrow. There's a lot of shops & stuff nearby. Just Another Hole is also located on 81st. (or in Broken Arrow, 81st becomes Aspen)
