The Caddo were farmers who lived in East Texas. There were two main groups of the Caddo in Texas. One major Caddo tribe was the Kadohadacho. The Kadohadacho lived in large villages along the Red river near the present day Oklahoma - Arkansas border. The other was the Tejas or Hasinais Caddo who lived around present day Nacogdoches. In fact, modern Nacogdoches is built on top of one of the largest of the old Hasinai villages.

The men would often shave their heads leaving a strip of hair down the middle. This hair was allowed to grow long down to the waist. They would then paint the shaved sides of their heads with colored paints. Another favorite men's hair style was to cut all the hair about 4 inches long except of a spot on the top on the head. Hair on this spot was allowed to grow long. Women grew their hair long and parted it in the middle. Some of them had a way of tying their hair in a curious knot behind their necks.

The Caddo were sedentary farmers who grew corn, beans, pumpkins, squashes, watermelons, sunflowers, and tobacco. Hunting for bear, deer, small mammals, and birds was important, as were fishing and gathering shellfish, nuts, berries, seeds, and roots. People who lived on the edge of the plains also hunted bison in the historic period.
