The Natchitoches Indians were a small tribe of Louisiana, relatives of the Caddo.
Few records of their language remain, but it was clearly Caddoan and likely was a dialect of the Caddo language.
The Natchitoches do not exist as a distinct tribe today. They merged together with other Caddoan tribes in the 1700's.
Most Natchitoches descendants live among the Caddo Tribe today.
