Population[edit]

Recently and anonymously added "circa 1500: 200,000". That may be true, but doesn't seem to come from any of the references given. Is there some authority for this? -- Jmabel|Talk 18:55, Oct 13, 2004 (UTC)

Caddo Nation vs. Caddo Tribe[edit]

The article says that the Caddo are considering changing their name to Caddo Nation of Oklahoma from Caddo Tribe of Oklahoma. Haven't they already done this? I've got a license plate that says Caddo Nation, and their website is www.caddonation-nsn.gov.

Date for image seems wrong[edit]

[1]: Photographic technology to take a portrait didn't exist in 1816. - Jmabel | Talk 09:07, 25 November 2006 (UTC)

Hey, at least it wasn't in color! --Node (talk) 23:24, 23 February 2008 (UTC)

"related groups" info removed from infobox[edit]

For dedicated editors of this page: The "Related Groups" info was removed from all {{Infobox Ethnic group}} infoboxes. Comments may be left on the Ethnic groups talk page. Ling.Nut 23:11, 18 May 2007 (UTC)

Pronunciation?[edit]

From the spelling I would assume it's pronounced ['k&doU] (using the Kirshenbaum version of ASCII-IPA; that is, CAD-dough), but there's a street named Caddo something-or-other in a town in Texas, and the residents apparently say ['keIdoU] (KAY-dough). --Trovatore 06:40, 11 June 2007 (UTC)

Its pronounced pronounced (CAD-dough). I've never heard (KAY-dough). I'm from Texas.

Fourche-maline[edit]

the article on the fourche-maline river states that the caddoan culture derived from the fourche-maline culture. i'm not sufficiently knowledgeable to be confident in adding that to this article, but it seems that this fact should be added here or removed from the other article.Toyokuni3 (talk) 18:04, 5 November 2008 (UTC)

New article that mentions the Fourche Maline connection and a few other things Caddoan Mississippian culture. Heironymous Rowe (talk) 05:04, 5 February 2010 (UTC)

Mythology/Folklore - orphaned content[edit]

The following text has been removed from Flood myth, but it isn't sourced so I wont put it into the entry. If it is correct and sourceable please use it in this entry.Griswaldo (talk) 19:17, 30 September 2010 (UTC)

  • In Caddo mythology, four monsters grew in size and power until they touched the sky. At that time, a man heard a voice telling him to plant a hollow reed. He did so, and the reed grew very big very quickly. The man entered the reed with his wife and pairs of all good animals. Waters rose, and covered everything but the top of the reed and the heads of the monsters. A turtle then killed the monsters by digging under them and uprooting them. The waters subsided, and winds dried the earth.

Adding Information[edit]

Hey everyone, I am writing to let y'all know that I am planning to add to the page. Through research, I have found information about the culture of the Caddo Nation that shows that women had an important role in the arts of the tribe. For example, the women made most of the pottery and were involved in many dancing rituals. I should be adding this information within the next week depending on approval of Nation head.Stayhydrated (talk) 18:10, 25 June 2019 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by Stayhydrated (talkcontribs) 16:20, 25 June 2019 (UTC)

As long as it can be cited by reliable sources, that is published, secondary sources, and not original, unpublished research, it should all be fine. Turkey dance discusses Caddo women's roles in dancing. Yuchitown (talk) 18:19, 25 June 2019 (UTC)Yuchitown

Adding of Information[edit]

I have added my information to the page. I did not add some of the information I had originally planned on, but I did include information about the gender roles through hunting and gathering and some other cultural aspects.Stayhydrated (talk) 11:06, 1 July 2019 (UTC)
