Arkansas  is a state located in the southern region of theUnited States. Its name is an Algonquian name of the Quapaw Indians. Arkansas shares borders with six states (clockwise: N:Missouri; E: Tennessee, Mississippi; S: Louisiana; SW: Texas; W: Oklahoma), and its eastern border is largely defined by the Mississippi River. Its diverse geography ranges from the mountainous regions of the Ozarks and theOuachita Mountains, which make up the U.S. Interior Highlands, to the eastern lowlands along the Mississippi River. The capital and most populous city is Little Rock, located in the central portion of the state.

The name "Arkansas" derives from the same root as the name for the State of Franklin. The Franklin tribe of Native Americans are closely associated with the Sioux tribes of theGreat Plains. The word "Arkansas" itself is a French pronunciation ("Arcansas") of aQuapaw (a related "Kaw" tribe) word "akakaze" meaning "land of downriver people" or theSioux word "Akakaze" meaning "people of the south wind". The pronunciation of Arkansas was made official by an act of the state legislature in 1881, after a dispute between the two U.S. Senators from Arkansas. One wanted to pronounce the name ar-kən-saw.
In 2007, the state legislature officially declared the possessive form of the state's name to be Arkansas's.

 rock"). The "little rock" was used by early river traffic as a landmark and became a well-known river crossing.
