Aboriginal families had populated the area in and around Detroit for thousand of years prior to the first European settlers to write or document the region. As early as 1610-1629, Étienne Brûlé was sent from Quebec by Samuel de Champlain to investigate the region and its peoples.

The Jesuit missionaries, Jean de Brébeuf and Pierre Joseph Marie Chaumont, visited the village of Khioeta, which they renamed St. Michel, on the what is today the Eastern shore of the Detroit River. They were driven out by a resisting band of Algonquin peoples after wintering there in 1641.

Familias nativas habían habitado la zona alrededor de Detroit desde hace miles de años antes de los primeros colonos europeos.

Durante los años 1610-1629, Étienne Brûlé fue mandado de Quebec por parte de Samuel de Champlain para investigar la región y sus pueblos.

En el año 1641 los misioneros jesuitas Jean de Brébeuf y Pierre Joseph Marie Chaumont, quedaron una temporada en el pueblo Khioeta. Cambiaron el nombre del pueblo al oriente del rio Detroit a St. Michel. Fueron expulsados el mismo año.
