They migrated from western Montana southward into the Rocky Mountains in Colorado in the 17th and 18th centuries, and finally into the Southern Plains by the early 19th century.

The Kiowa language (Cáuijògà) is still spoken today and is part of the Tanoan language family. , there are 12,000 members.
