The only I would add is Paleoindians making of Clovis and Folsom points made Karankawa and Caddoans better at their craft of hunting. I realize I did this wrong. I wrote “From my understanding, so in this discussion, I will explain the similarities and differences that I learned from this Indian tribes. I will start with Caddo Indians. Caddos Indians were known for Agricultural Society. They establish permeant housing known today of mounds that found today. They trace family history only through the mother’s side. Both men and women planted the corn.
Although the men hunted for deer and bear. They believe similar belief of Christians of Ten Commandants. Father above and all Caddoan people were entitled to enter the House of Death, only the enemies were sent to House of Texino or known as the devil. Caddos lived in permanent villages and they planted corn, beans, and squash.
Karankawast they were usually tall. each group had they own political entity. Civil chief, trial leader, and war chief usually a younger man appointed the civil chief. The men hunted and fish.
The women spent summers collecting fruits of various plants. They lived in willow pole frame covered by animals skin large enough seven to eight people. Women used craft light baskets and pottery found on beaches. Transportation source was dugout canoe of hallow tree trunk. They used smoke to communicate. They were known as dog raisers.Atakapas Indians the word coming to the Choctaw language which means eaters of men. There is little evidence that cannibalism was practiced.
They lived as fisherman, hunters, and gathers. They mainly spear fishing for oysters or birds but would never travel to the ocean only in the stream. They did believe they came from the ocean from large oyster shell travel upland. Sported tattoos and wore body paint. They had no official leaders for tribal leaders just elderly usually more superior to the youth.Coachuiletecans they collected nuts and berries. The women wore deerskin clothing unlike Atakapas women used moss grasses or animal hides.
Karankawas women wore either Spanish moss or animal skin. Main difference notice is Caddo Indians only permeant housing while other Indians were always on the move. Although all these Indians lifestyle leads the way to Agricultural Revolution.
Through all this, I understand all this lived in small villages of round, thatch-roofed houses, baked pottery, built small burial grounds over their dead, and participated in long-distance trade. A religious movement called Hopewell Complex took hold amongst the Adena and spread to virtually all Woodland peoples, including the Caddoans of Northeast Texas. Hopewell Complex last until 500 AD of honoring the dead.
Also, would recommend watching these videos I that were useful. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K9liB6PNEW0https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=01jEsLgLVzY
