The Native's Story
We are the Mississippians, the very last of the Native American group and the first people to encounter the Europeans !
Those Europeans,with their nasty diseases and advanced weaponry! They would soon kill us all!

The Mississippians come from a long line of Indians who have advanced their shelter, weaponry, and their overall way of living.

The three reasons for exploration were God, Gold and Glory, mainy gold. The interaction between the Natives and Europeans was far from friendly. The Europenans caused havic by bringing in diseases like smallpox and winning wars from their advanced weapons and protection .
