About Kisatchie National Forest
Kisatchie National Forest, the only national forest in Louisiana, is located in the forested piney hills and hardwood bottoms of seven central and northern parishes. It is part of the Cenozoic uplands (some of Louisiana's oldest rocks) and has large areas of long leaf pine forests (a forest type that has declined significantly over the last century). It is one of the largest pieces of natural landscape in Louisiana, with some 604,000 acres of public land, more than half of which is vital long leaf pine and flatwoods vegetation. These support many rare plant and animal species.

The name Kisatchie was derived from a tribe of Kichai Indians of the Caddoan Confederacy, who called themselves "Kitsatchie." In the late 1800s, virgin forests covered 85 percent of Louisiana. Not only was most of the land in timber, much of it was in pure stands of magnificent yellow pine. The quality, volume and level terrain represented a lumberman's dream.

Indigenous tribes used native trees to construct their homes. Many used wood posts from evergreens like pine, spruce and cedar for their dwellings.

Trees provided a rich food source for Native Americans. Acorns were commonly used for flour — especially white oak acorns since they did not contain bitter-tasting tannins. Hickory, black walnut, hazel nut, beech and pinyon pine nuts were also harvested for food. Indigenous people tapped sugar and red maple, and some hickories for syrup.

Not only did indigenous people make extensive use of wood products, they also managed the forest — usually by the use of fire. Fire was used to convert forest into grasslands and to maintain the meadow cover by burning these areas on 1-3 year cycles. Native tribes also employed fire to burn the underbrush to reduce the incidence of large-scale forest fires and to reinvigorate stands of trees such as aspen or pine.

The Kichai tribe (also Keechi or Kitsai) was a Native American Southern Plains tribe that lived in Texas, Louisiana and Oklahoma. Their name for themselves was K'itaish.
