Caddo (Cadodaquinon), a large North American nation formerly occupying parts of Arkansas, Louisiana, and Texas; later (1825) concentrated on the Red River, Louisiana, whence the parish of Caddo; now removed to the Brazos river below Fork Belknap, south-west Texas. The Caddoes appear to be remotely allied to the Pawnees through the Wichitas and Rickarees. Chief branches: Nandakoa, Tachie, Aliche, Nabedache, Jonie.
