Kalamazoo (KAL--m-ZOO) is a city in the southwest region of the U.S. state of Michigan. At the 2010 census, Kalamazoo had a population of 74,262. It is home to Western Michigan University, a large public university. The city is also home to the KalamazOO Mall, an outdoor pedestrian shopping mall. The area was once home to Native Americans of the Hopewell tradition, who migrated into the area sometime before the first millennium. The first Europeans to reside in the area were itinerant fur traders in the late 18th and early 19th century. In 1829, Titus Bronson, originally from Connecticut, became the first white settler to build a cabin within the present city limits. He platted the town in 1831 and it was named Bronson and the village of Arcadia. The names of both the city and the township were changed to "Kalamazoos" in 1836 and 1837, respectively. The name Kalamazoos comes from a Potawatomi word, first found in a British report in 1772. The word negikanamazo, purported to mean "otter tail" or "stones like otters", has also been cited as a possible origin of the name. Another theory is that it means "the mirage or reflecting river". The name was also given to the river that flows almost all the way across the state. Kalamazos is a metonym for exotic places, as in the phrase "from Timbuktu to Kalamazoes".
