ANNAHO INDIANS. The Annaho Indians were mentioned in documents (1687) of the La Salle expedition as enemies of the Kadohadacho Indians on the Red River. Annaho was an early name used by the French for the Osage Indians, whose base area at that time was in western Missouri. The Annahos are not to be confused with the Anaos, who were mentioned in a Spanish missionary report of 1691 as living near the Hasinai tribes of eastern Texas.
