Telling our Story: The Living History of the Myaamia

The Myaamia Center has developed a curriculum for grades 3-12 that tells the history of the Myaamia (Miami) tribe from pre-contact through today.

"Telling our Story: The Living History of the Myaamia provides teachers and home schooling families with a curriculum for teaching Myaamia (Miami Tribe) history to grades 3-12. The curriculum includes primary sources, images, videos, and lesson plans, which are all linked to the relevant content standards for Ohio, Indiana, and Oklahoma."

 "As a whole, the six sections of this curriculum address Myaamia history beginning with the pre-contact period (pre-1600s) and concluding with contemporary issues." 

Power Point slide presentations, downloadable lesson plans, an online language dictionary,
and pictures of artifacts are just a few of the many wonderful resources available to educators 
through this online curriculum.

 Examples of the primary source documents available on the site 
include the Indians in Ohio History map, above, 
and the Treaty of Montreal, pictured below.
