Amediche Indians

Margery H. Krieger General Entry

The Amediche (Nabiti, Naviti, Namidish) Indians were a Hasinai group of Caddos who lived near the Anadarkos in East Texas. According to BĂ©nard de La Harpe the Spanish established a temporary settlement among them, and they were at war with the Natchitoch Indians from 1714 to 1716.
