Mississauga First Nation is one of the five First Nations that make up the Mississauga Nations. It is located directly west of Blind River, Ontario, Canada, on the Mississagi River 8 Reserve.[2]

Name[edit]

The word Mississauga is an anglicized version of the Ojibwe word Misswezahging, which means ‘a river with many outlets.’ This name comes from the Mississaugi River, which is a bird-foot delta, a haven for fish and waterfowl and is currently a jointly managed Provincial Park.
