Caddo Journal

The Caddo Journal is devoted to the anthropology, history, geography, and current activities of the Caddo Nation, an American Indian group with a historical range covering the four-state area of Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, and Oklahoma.  The Caddo Journal began as the Caddoan Archeology Newsletter in 1989 and in 1996 the name changed to simply Caddoan Archeology.  Tim Perttula was founder and editor from 1989 until 1993 when Lois Albert became editor.  Tim Perttula again resumed his editorial role in 2002.  In 2003 the name was changed to Caddoan Archeology Journal, and in 2006 the name was changed again to Caddo Archeology Journal.  Now that SFA is publishing the journal, there is yet another name change, this time to simply Caddo Journal.  Archaeology will continue to be a primary focus, but articles related to the ethnography, language, history, geography, and current activities of the Caddo Nation will be encouraged.   Book reviews are also included in the journal.

The Caddo Journal is published once a year and distributed at the Caddo Conference, which is usually held in March of every year.  Articles may be submitted at any time of the year, although only those received before October 1 will be guaranteed a place in the March issue of the journal.  The subscription rate is $20 per year.   Please make checks payable to Dept. of Social and Cultural Analysis, SFA, and send to:
