The Myaamia Center at Miami University is the result of a unique 50-year relationship between a sovereign Native American tribe and a public university. It now serves as the research and educational development arm of the Miami Tribe’s language and culture revitalization efforts. The center’s financial stability and leadership in these areas has also allowed it to take a national role in language revitalization by hosting and providing support for the National Breath of Life Archival Institute for Indigenous Languages (National BoL). National BoL works with endangered language communities to build capacity around methods in archives-based research for community-directed revitalization efforts. The NEH has played an important role in supporting the ongoing developments of the Myaamia Center and National BoL’s technical and archival infrastructure.
