January 28, 12:00PM-1:00PM
The A&M-Commerce university community is invited to join in paying tribute to the memory of the Caddo Indians who lived in the Commerce area until they were relocated to Oklahoma Territory in 1859. Dr. Dan Jones will preside over the occasion as a plaque is unveiled honoring the memory of the Caddo Indians who once lived here.

Northeast Texas was once home to the Caddo Indians. Their settlements stretched as far as Southwest Arkansas and Northwest Louisiana. After their relocation to Oklahoma, the Caddo Nation established their headquarters in Binger, Oklahoma. The Caddos are known today for their dedication to maintaining their language and other cultural traditions such as pottery, song, and dance. The word "Texas" comes from the Caddoan word "Tayshas" meaning allies or friends.
