Here is the version I read at the Rusk County Memorial Library in Henderson.
Nachodoches and Nachitoches were twin sons of the chief of the Caddos in East Texas. Concerned at the prospect of a battle for control of the tribe, he devised this plan: Nachitoches would go two days toward the rising sun and there establish his territory and Nacogdoches would go two days toward the setting sun and there establish his territories. Apparently the plan was successful.
