A Discussion on Caddo Indian Settlement and Conditions from European Contact through Modern Time

Monday, October 8th at 6:30PM at the Historic Nacogdoches Depot: Mr. Phil Cross will speak on "A Discussion on Caddo Indian Settlement and Conditions from European Contact through Modern Time"

Mr. Cross will discuss the Caddo Indian's location at the time of Hernando De Soto's first expedition into the ArkLaTex region in 1542 and the tribe's movement through modern times. Cross will speak to the tribe's subsequent relations with various emerging empires and the chaotic and challenging circumstances of the Caddo tribe as it lost its homelands, was demonized, and forced to move from area to area as it attempted to settle under constant threats from state and local militias and local citizenry. Cross will also present information about the tribe's reservation in west Texas and then its relocation to Oklahoma and its current situation.
