Where Did the Caddo Indians Live?

Caddo Indians lived along the Red River in Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana, according to Texas State Historical Association. The piny forests in the area provided wood and food, while the temperate climate and good rainfall were ideal for farming.

Texas Indians explains that during the winters, the Caddo resided in tall, cone-shaped grass huts they made by constructing wooden frames and covering them with long grasses and cut cane. The huts were furnished with beds and chairs, and often, several families slept in one hut. Their summer homes had roofs but no sides and included screen-like raised floors made of woven cane or split wood that allowed the air to circulate.
