Abstract:

"Most readers will enjoy the writing style - often reminiscent of traditional Indian rhetoric - in Caddo Indians: Where We Come From. For many the account of Caddo past in Louisiana, Arkansas, Texas, and Oklahoma will be a revelation. And even readers familiar with the documentary and archaeological sources will appreciate the fresh perspectives interwoven throughout this narrative history." "Cecile Elkins Carter's chronicle is based both on archaeological data and oral histories and on descriptions by French, Spanish, and American explorers, missionaries, traders, government officials, and settlers from the fifteenth through nineteenth centuries. Sometimes the author pauses to share observations, stories, and vignettes on twentieth-century Caddos, inviting the reader to recognize the strengths, rooted in ancient culture, that have enabled her people to survive epidemics, enemy attacks, and displacement from their aboriginal homelands. Carter creates vivid pictures of daily life in the three branches of the nation - Kadohadacho, Hasinai, and Natchitoches - and introduces impressive Caddo leaders past and present."--Jacket.
