The Caddo word Tay-Sha originally means wolf, but it is the wolf that takes you to the other side when you pass away. He is your guide and therefore your friend. The many Caddoan tribes that saw the entrance of the explorers into their land used the word Tay-Shas to reference other friendly Caddo tribes and alliances within the "Nortenos" area Indians of Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Louisiana. The Spanish explorers and missionaries into the area heard this word and pronounced it "Tejas". This is where the name of the state Texas comes from and the word we use to describe friends and allies.
