The Caddos were most famous for their pottery. Caddo artists made elaborately decorated pots and bottles in many different styles.
The Caddo revered a god called Caddi Ayo or "captain of the sky." A member of the tribe called the "xinesi" acted as intermediary in communicating between god and the tribe, primarily through meditation.
A group of Caddo men stand around the drum (most important instrument for Caddo) and play it together, while other Caddos dance in a circle and sing.
*The name Caddo comes from the Indian word Kadohadacho, which means "true chiefs"
*Most Caddos speak English today, but some people, especially elders, also speak their native Caddo language. Caddo is an endangered language because most children are not learning it anymore.
*The women of the tribe generally had long hair which they would wear in a bun. On special occasions they would decorate their hair with beads or ribbons.
*Today these Native American people live in modern day houses and apartment buildings.
