The Caddo Indians
Tribes at the Convergence of Empires, 1542-1854Book - 1995
The Caddo Indian culture of the Texas-Louisiana border area came face to face with Luis de Moscoso, the leader of a Spanish exploration party, in 1542, a year that became a turning point for the centuries- old people. From then on they would be dominated by the interaction of the native confederacies with the empires of European adventurers and settlers. This study traces all three Caddo confederacies (Kadohadacho, Hasinai, and Natchitoches) as they consolidated into a single tribe to face the soldiers, traders and settlers and eventually fell victim to swindlers, losing their lands and being moved to a Texas reservation in 1854.
