Here’s a bit of sorrow. The Republic of Texas compelled the Caddo to relocate to land set aside near the Brazos River in 1854. Then, in July 1859, Texas politicians appealed to the federal government, and officials compelled the Caddo tribe to a 15-day march to a location in Oklahoma. They lost a great deal of their stock and belongings along the way. Today, the Caddo Nation of Oklahoma is federally acknowledged and is located in Binger, Oklahoma, with over 5,000 members.
