Caddo Indians: Where We Come From by Cecile Elkins Carter
This narrative history of the Caddo Indians creates a vivid picture of daily life in the Caddo Nation.
Using archaeological date, oral histories, and descriptions by explorers and settlers, Cecile Elkins Carter introduces impressive Caddo leaders past and present.
The book provides observations, stories, and vignettes on twentieth-century Caddos and invites the reader to recognize the strengths, rooted in ancient culture, that have enabled the Caddos to survive epidemics, enemy attacks, and displacement from their homelands in Louisiana, Arkansas, Texas, and Oklahoma.
Cecil Elkins Carter (1928-2011) was Cultural Liaison for the Caddo Tribe of Oklahoma.
