About Mississauga

The name "Mississauga" is derived from the Anishinaabe word Misi-zaagiing, meaning "[Those at] The Great River-mouth."The city was once a part of Toronto Township. In 1808, the Mississaugas arrived in what would later become Ontario and established their territory along the Credit River as a means to protect themselves from hostile Iroquois tribes. They were called variously by different names throughout that period: Ahnishinaabeg (Anishinabe), Daa'mainahsh (Dahomeyans) and Mississaugas. By this time, they had displaced other Iroquois tribes from southern Ontario . The people living along Credit River sought protection during times of war with either England or America; when it came time for peace negotiations between whichever European power held them captive at any given moment, they found refuge among their fellow First Nations allies on both sides of Lake Ontario - one reason why many Native American artifacts have been discovered in Mississauga's soil over the years since colonization began.
