In the 1687 documents of the La Salle expedition the Cassia Indians were reported as allies of the Kadohadachos on the Red River. Apparently the Cassias were not the same as the Casibas, reported in a Spanish document of 1691 as living southeast of the Hasinais. The affiliations of both groups remain unknown.
