The Communication & Publications Office develops the technological means by which information and materials are distributed to the widely scattered tribal community and general public.
Ongoing projects of the Communication & Publications Office include managing the technical aspects of the Myaamia Center’s development of mobile applications, the maintenance and improvement of the ilaatawaakani project (MIDA), and exploration into the technical aspects of language learning & culturally informative tools that can be used by the widespread Myaamia community.
In addition to technological management, this office is also responsible for the documentation of the Miami Tribe’s activities, through photography, videography, and digital, and written publications.
