This chapter discusses the successive endeavors and cultural legacies of the three colonial powers from 1541 until 1798 when Spain ceded the Natchez District to the United States. It then describes the major European groups that have been part of Mississippi’s cultural landscape since early statehood and those who chose to settle in Mississippi’s subregions at a time when the state received few immigrants (Irish and Scots-Irish, Scots, ethnic Protestants, Cajuns, Slavonians, Hungarians, Polish, Germans, Italians, Greeks, Romani and Irish travelers, Danes).

Keywords:   ethnicity, ethnic groups, subregions, colonial powers, European groups
