Myaamiaataweenki ‘the Miami language’ was once spoken throughout Myaamionki ‘Miami homelands’, which include what are now the states of Ohio, Indiana and Illinois.

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 the reclamation and revitalization of Myaamiaataweenki demonstrates the restorative healing effects that language and cultural revitalization continues to have for the Myaamia people. Learn about this journey with George Ironstrack, of the Miami Tribe of Oklahoma and Assistant Director of the Myaamia Center at Miami University.
