Sudbury Ontario History - Native Indians



Fertile marsh near St Joseph's Island The earliest recorded Indian habitation of the area is 6,000 to 7,000 BC, based on an excavation on Manitoulin Island where quartzite tools and weapons were found. More recently, early Woodland Indians inhabited the area around 225 BC.

By the time the first explorers arrived, the Algonquin, Chippewa and Ojibway tribes had settled into the area along the French River between Lake Huron and the Ottawa River. Studies of native customs and language indicate that the Algonquins had lived with the Crees and then migrated eastwards until they met the Iroquois.
