Early History of Mississippi
The ancient Indians who lived in the territory of the modern state of Mississippi, belonged to the so-called “culture of the builders of mounds” (or “Mississippian culture”). They were characterized by agriculture, a developed trade network, a complex social structure, as well as the construction of flat-topped earth mounds, on which residential and religious buildings were built.
By the time European colonization began, the Indians of the Chickasaw, Choctaw, Natchez, Biloxi, Yazu, and Pascagoula peoples lived on the lands of the Mississippi.
The first European explorer of the Mississippi was in 1540 the famous Spanish pioneer Hernando de Soto, whose expedition came from present-day Florida through Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Tennessee and Alabama.
After René de La Salle descended the Mississippi River from the Great Lakes to the Gulf of Mexico in 1682, France began to develop new lands named after King Louis (Louis) XIV “Louisiana”. In 1699, an expedition led by Pierre d’Iberville built the first European settlement on the lands of the Mississippi, Fort Mourepa (later known as “Old Biloxi”) in the area of present-day Ocean Springs. In 1716, the French founded Fort Rosalie, which later grew into the city of Natchez and became the economic center of the region. From 1720 to 1723, Biloxi was the capital of the Louisiana colony.
In 1719, the French brought the first African slaves to Louisiana, since then the economy of the colony (including Mississippi) has been very dependent on the use of slave labor. It is characteristic that in the French colonies another, third (except for Europeans and Africans) racial group, the Creoles, was formed. At first, all people born in the colonies were called so, but later the term began to be used to refer to the descendants of white men and black (or mixed race) women. These so-called “colored Creoles” were free, many of them were educated, acquired property and played a significant role in the life of the colony. The influence of Creole culture is still very significant in the US South (especially in Louisiana).
