Education and Outreach

This office serves two distinct populations. The first is the Miami Tribe community where it develops educational models and materials that specifically address language and culture educational needs. The second population is the general university community and local public educators where educational support is provided in response to the lack of indigenous educational materials for K-12 public education.

Current initiatives:

  • Curriculum development for Eewansaapita program (tribal).
  • Telling Our Story: A Living History of the Myaamia ¬†an interdisciplinary curriculum for 4th through 12th grades (public).
  • Develop teaching models based on indigenous concepts (tribal).
  • Teach the Miami Heritage classes and provide support for the developing Miami Tribe class to be offered through the Center for American and World Cultures (tribal & university).
  • Continue regular class visitations sharing information about the Miami Tribe and ongoing research (university).

Planned initiatives:

  • Certificate program for tribal educators.
  • Long-distance learning development.
