Oklahoma is so flippin' thrown around its not even funny. We are sometimes referred to as Midwestern, Great Plains, Southcentral, and southwestern.

I think the best answer to Oklahoma is that it IS a mix of all. You may not like to hear this but Oklahoma does have cultural identities and ways of life from the Midwest although we are not a Midwestern state. Its really a mix of different regions, you can tell by all the accents also.
