A capacity crowd of over 40 history enthusiasts came to hear retired NSU professor, archaeologist and author Jeffrey Girard give a presentation on the Caddo people Saturday, September 15th at the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame and History Museum. Girard is the author of the recently published The Caddo and Their Ancestors: Archaeology and the Native People of Northwest Louisiana. His talk touched on the history of the Caddo people from prehistoric times to their interactions with the European colonies. The Caddo lived in an area that stretched from East Texas to Oklahoma and the Ouachita mountains in Arkansas and included much of Louisiana. He also spoke on the archaeological findings and processes that have filled in much of our knowledge of this people who had inhabited much of the Southeast for thousands of years.
