GEOTE INDIANS

GEOTE INDIANS. The Geote (Geota, Teote) Indians are known from a Spanish document of 1748 that lists the names of twenty-five Indian groups of east-central and southeastern Texas who had asked for missions in that general area. About half the names on this list, including Geote, cannot be identified. The others consist of groups identifiable as Caddoans (including Wichita), Tonkawans, Atakapans, and Karankawans.
