AFS Presidential Invited Lecture: Miami Tribe – Miami University: Neepwaantiinki ‘Partners in Learning’    

Sponsored by:
American Folklore Society

Lecture given by Daryl Baldwin (Kinwalaniihsia), citizen of the Miami Tribe of Oklahoma and Executive Director of the Myaamia Center, Miami University Ohio.
Since 1972, the Miami Tribe of Oklahoma and Miami University in Oxford, Ohio have been engaged in a partnership rooted in a concept of neepwaantiinki: ‘partners in learning’. Central to this 50-year relationship are the capacity building efforts of the Myaamia Center located on campus. The center serves as the research and educational development arm of the Miami Tribe with focus on language and cultural revitalization. Important to this effort are the use of extensive archives and the development of tools and processes that allow for archival content to directly serve the tribes educational needs and language revitalization efforts. This talk will broadly cover various aspects of this capacity building effort in the context of this unique tribe-university relationship and will share observations and lessons for the general work of community-institutional partnerships, especially but not only with Native Nations.

Cain’s Ballroom, 423 North Main Street, Tulsa, OK 74103

Duck Creek Ceremonial Ground

American Folklore Society Annual Meetings often conclude with a participatory and celebratory dance event. This year, the closing dance will be a participatory stomp dance hosted by the Duck Creek Ceremonial Ground, a Yuchi (Euchee) Ceremonial Ground of the Muscogee Nation whose membership includes people of Yuchi, Muscogee, Shawnee and other Native American heritages. The dance will be open to all annual meeting attendees as well as to other Native and non-Native participants. Stomp dance is the shared social dance form found among almost all of the Native American Nations of eastern Oklahoma, including among the Cherokee, Muscogee, Shawnee, and Yuchi living in and near the city of Tulsa.

This live event will not be recorded.
