In 1938 the Secretary of the Interior issued a Charter of incorporation to the Caddo Tribe of Oklahoma. The Charter spelled out the limits of tribal functions within the federal system as well as safeguarding Caddo power: "To promote in any way the general welfare. To advance the standard of living of the Tribe through development of tribal resources, the acquisition of new tribal land, the preservation of existing land holdings, the better utilization of land and the development of a credit program for the Tribe."
