Tawehash Indian Tribe

The Tawehash Indians were a Caddoan tribe of Oklahoma, relatives of the Wichita and Caddo tribes. They were sometimes also known as the Taovaya, Taovayes, or Towash. The Tawehash no longer exist as a distinct tribe. Most of them merged into the Wichita tribe, where most Tawehash descendants still live today. Their language was never properly recorded, but was probably either a dialect of Wichita or a closely related language.
