Mission Statement

"Deepening Myaamia connections through research, education, and outreach."


Vision:

The Myaamia Nation will be strengthened through the revitalization of our distinct ways of knowing, speaking, and being.

The Myaamia Center, a Miami Tribe of Oklahoma initiative located within an academic setting at Miami University in Oxford, OH, serves the needs of the Myaamia people, Miami University, and partner communities through research, education, and outreach that promote Myaamia language, culture, knowledge, and values.

Mission:

The Myaamia Center has two main purposes:

  • To conduct in-depth research to assist tribal educational initiatives aimed at the preservation of language and culture. This research is used to create a wide range of educational models and materials for community language and cultural programs.
  • To expose undergraduate and graduate students at Miami University to tribal efforts in language and cultural revitalization. Student experiences are gained through a wide range of activities, including visits to Oklahoma, direct involvement in research initiatives, class visitations by Center staff, and access to Miami Tribe language and cultural resources.

The Myaamia Center is directly supported by the Miami Tribe of Oklahoma and Miami University. Anyone committed to helping perpetuate Miami language and culture for future generations is welcome to participate. Contact our office to get involved.
