Texans pride themselves in being friendly; thus the state motto, “Friendship.” This motto was adopted by the forty-first State Legislature in February 1930. It was probably selected because the name Texas, or Tejas, was the Spanish translation of the Caddo Indian word meaning “friends” or “allies.” So Texans’ reputation for friendliness comes not only from the attitude of its citizens, but is well grounded in the history of Texas’ first inhabitants.
