Among other projects, we create digital resources, including our mobile apps, that advance the Center's goals.

We also gather community-oriented web resources for members of the Miami Tribe of Oklahoma and others interested in our research.

Release notes

  • Initial Release: September 2012
  • Updated: 2013 and 2017
  • Status: Available

The original iOS app was developed in the 2011-12 academic year at Miami University by Dr. Douglas Troy’s CSE Capstone class.

The Myaamia Center partnered with Dr. Troy’s capstone class in 2013 to create an Android OS version and update the iOS app. In 2017, Dr. Troy’s class worked to bring both versions up to date.

New features in the latest update include a nursery room, flashcards to help you test your knowledge, a pronunciation guide, and the story eehonci kiintoohki pyaawaaci myaamiaki (Where the Miamis First Came From) with optional audio. Updated to run on Android 8 (Oreo) and iOS 11.

Sound recordings by Daryl Baldwin, Director of the Myaamia Center and Jarrid Baldwin, Community Language Program Coordinator for the Miami Tribe of Oklahoma. Photographs included in the app are by Andrew J. Strack, Karen L. Baldwin, and Jonathan M. Fox.
