Picking Up the Threads of Knowledge (Postponed)

The Indiana Historical Society will postpone all on-site special events and programs, including group tours, until the end of April. We will continue to evaluate the situation on an ongoing basis. Every attempt will be made to reschedule events for a later date.

Myaamiaataweenki “the Miami Language” was once spoken throughout Myaamionki “Miami homelands,” which include what are now the states of Ohio, Indiana and Illinois. Join us for Picking Up the Threads of Our Knowledge: Revitalization of Myaamia “Miami Indian” Language and Culture on April. 4.

After 100 years of forced removals, population fragmentation, land loss, and boarding schools the language fell into a state of dormancy. In the 1990s, the Miami Tribe of Oklahoma initiated a national effort to revitalize Myaamiaataweenki and created programs to help breathe new life into the language. The story of reclamation and revitalization of Myaamiaataweenki demonstrates the restorative healing effects that language and cultural revitalization continues to have for Myaamia people. Learn about this journey with George Ironstrack, citizen of the Miami Tribe of Oklahoma and Assistant Director of the Myaamia Center at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio.
