myaamiaki iiši meehtohseeniwiciki: How the Miami People Live
The exhibition features artifacts and objects from the Miami Tribe whose original homeland encompassed the midwestern lands and rivers now named after them. Displays date from a facsimile of a Wea Deer Hide Map, circa 1775, to contemporary art by Miami Tribal members. The exhibition celebrates the vibrant heritage of the Miami Tribe, currently undergoing a language and culture revitalization effort.
Highlights of the opening on September 18th are welcoming remarks by Miami University President, David Hodge, and the dedication of the site for Miami Elder Eugene Brown's bronze sculpture, "A Tribe Named Miami, A Surveyor's Stake, A Town Named Oxford."
