Historic and Cultural Objects of the Myaamia

Miami objects held in other institutions.

Brings together information on museum objects affiliated with the Miami held in other institutions. In 2005, teams of researchers visited various institutions across the U. S. that had items in their collections that were identified as created by or affiliated by the Miami.  They recorded information about each object and documented through photographs.  The resulting information was published, and some are replicated here.  Note that these items are not physically held by the MHMA or the Miami Nation.
