Most of the discoveries were made by the native Indians. The discovered that the river flowed into the Pacific through the Gulf of Mexico. This was a great finding and opened up several options for trade.

In the 17th century, the first major import of black slaves began to the state. In 1729, the Natchez Indians Massacre took place which killed 250 people as per records. The Natchez Indian tribe is very popular for the discovery of the Natchez Trail that runs all the way to Tennessee and beyond.
