Teacher's Guide - Westward Expansion - Caddo Friendship Bowl Details

This reusable guide covers 1821-1848 and such key people as Davy Crockett. It is to be used in conjunction with the Caddo Friendship Bowl (EDU 103). The Caddo people lived in areas of Texas, Louisiana, Arkansas, and Oklahoma. The name Caddo comes from Cadohadacho, meaning "true chiefs." Their complex society was known for their cultivation of corn (maize) and their beautiful ceramics. Caddo potters were very skilled and creative. They combined flowing forms with polished surfaces that were decorated by engraved designs. While much of the pottery was made for everyday use in cooking, storage, and serving, Caddo pottery also had ritual and funerary purposes. Their ceramic art expresses how they saw the world and their feelings for departed loved ones. It was customary to bury their dead with special artifacts or offerings, especially beautifully decorated pottery vessels. The name "Texas" actually comes from the Spanish pronunciation of a Caddo word meaning "friends" or "allies." The word "Friendship" was also adopted as the Texas state motto.
