Welcome to Len Kubiak's Texas History Series

How Texas Got It's Name



The state name originates from the Caddo Indian word "teysha" meaning "friends" Texas comes from the Caddo Indian tribe. The Spanish Conquistadors encountered the Caddo Indians around 1540 in the area of East Texas. The Caddos referred to the Spanish as "tayshas," which meant "friend" or "allies." The Spanish translation was "tejas." The Americans converted it to "Texas."
