The vision behind this group is to give those individuals with a voice a chance to come together and target the real issues we face within our communities. A group that aims to address and improve every aspect of life. We need to find ways to hold city wide forums that will give the people of our city a chance to speak up about what needs to be addressed. We have to start from somewhere, we have to come together for the common goal of improving our city overall.

Native American Heritage

Native American Heritage

Though many people are familiar with places throughout our state that hold Native American names — including Yalobusha, Itawamba and Mississippi itself — few realize just how many native peoples made their home in our state. Many historians agree that the area now known as Mississippi was home to a greater variety of indigenous tribes than any other southeastern state. Up into the 1700s — when recordkeeping of the region began — local tribes included the Acolapissa, Biloxi and Pascagoula tribes on the Gulf Coast; the Bayougoula, Houma and Natchez tribes on the lower Mississippi; and the Chakchiuma, lbitoupa, Koroa, Ofogoula, Taposa, Tiou, Tunica and Yazoo tribes on the Yazoo River in the Mississippi Delta. The Choctaw inhabited the east central part of the state, while the Chickasaw dwelled in the north and northeast. The original Mississippians were most likely the Choctaw, who date back to the early 1500s. The Choctaw were the most populous by far and remain so to this day.

Mississippi History Timeline

With over 12,000 years of history, Mississippi has a story to tell. The Mississippi History Timeline is divided into eight eras, and each era centers around major occurrences that changed the way people live in Mississippi.
