REVISED STUDY GUIDE NOTES Karankawas - Lived along the Texas Gulf Coast, cannibals (ceremonial), strong, tall, legendary hunters, swimmers, and warriors. They ate fish, small game, and alligators. They were never Christianized. These were the Indians that would later settle Goliad’s mission La Bahia. Caddoe - Lived in East Texas bordering French LA. Perhaps the most civilized of all the Indian groups due in part to the cultivation of crops. The Caddoe also practiced cannibalism but only as a ceremonial ritual. Grew crops and traded with French and Spanish. Some would settle some of the East Texas missions. Cohuiltecans - south Texas (northern Mexico), primitive, lived off of environment, scavengers, nomadic, Spanish did well Christianizing them in the San Antonio missions.
