COMMENT

 

The Padouca were displaced from the Great Plains by the Comanche around 1750. These Comanche then also became known as the "Padouca" by the Europeans, which is really confusing. Some of the fleeing Padouca went to live independently amongst the Kiowa, others merged with the Jicarilla Apache.
