How Texas got its name
“The story goes that the word “Texas” itself comes from the Caddo word for friends.” The Caddo was a Native American Tribe that dominated East Texas. Because Texas comes from the word friend, friendship is the official motto of the state of Texas and the official slogan of Texas is “the friendly state.”
