DOTCHETONNE INDIANS

DOTCHETONNE INDIANS. The Dotchetonne Indians are known only from records of the La Salle expedition, which identify them as late seventeenth century allies of the Kadohadachos. Although some writers state that the Dotchetonnes lived in northeastern Texas, this has never been demonstrated. J. R. Swanton identified the Dotchetonne Indians as a Caddoan group that lived on Bayou Dauchite in the area of northwestern Louisiana, but he presented no argument for this identification.
