The main tribe that inhabited the area that is now Arkansas was the Quapaw tribe that migrated south and settled along the Arkansas River. The Little Rock area was primarily inhabited at the time by Quapaw, and the Aquixo. The Aquixo were advanced farmers and had cultivated the fertile soil of the Little Rock area to a point that even impressed the Spanish, especially De Soto who led the exploration to this area in 1541.
When the French arrived in the early 18th century they surveyed the area and named the area La Petite Roche in 1721, which in English, translates to Little Rock. The area was significant because it marked the transition from the flat geography of the delta in the South to the foothills of the mountains moving north.
