Walking in Balance
Welcome from the Chief
Welcome to the Mississauga First Nation website. We hope you'll find most of your Mississauga related questions within its pages and links.
Mississauga is signatory to the Robinson Huron Treaty of 1850 and resides withing its traditional territory. The community is located at the mouth of the river which shares its name, The Mississaugi. Spoken in the anishnaabemowin language it is Misswezhaging, which means "many outlets". Although the community is located within the "reserve" boundary, the Traditional Territory extends towards the Huron Watershed. Mississauga ancestors and current Mississauga's travel the extent of the Mississaugi River utilizing its abundant resources. The river begins at Lake Huron and extends as far as Bark Lake and beyond.
I hope you enjoy the small bit of information and seek more knowledge of Mississaugi within the First Nation and its people.
