Caddo Tribe

In warm weather the Caddo wouldn't wear anything covering their upper body. Both men and women decorated their bodies with painting and tattooing. Traditionally these indians traveled by foot and would use dogs pulling sleds to transport things. The Caddo people produced beautiful art including pottery, woodcarvings, and baskets.
