Dotame Indians. A tribe of which Lewis and Clark learned from Indian informants. They were said to speak the Comanche language and to number 30 warriors, or 120 souls, in 10 lodges.  No traders had been among them; they trafficked usually with the Arikara, were hostile toward the Sioux, but friendly with the Mandan, the Arikara, and with their neighbors.  From the use of the name in connection with Cataka (Kiowa Apache) and Nemousin (Comanche), the Dotame are seemingly identifiable with the Kiowa.
