Eewansaapita Kiihkayonki 2010-2013
Since 2010 the Myaamia Foundation has supported the initial implementation of the Eewansaapita Summer Educational Experience in Fort Wayne, Indiana. The program originated in 2005 near Miami, Oklahoma and has been expanded into the homeland in order to respond to increasing interest for cultural programing by tribal members who live in Indiana. The Eewansaapita Kiihkayonki program is currently serving an annual average of 25 youth participants.
The Myaamia Foundation board and director are pleased by the accomplishments and dedication of the Fort Wayne community towards language and cultural based education in their region. The foundation is proud to have provided funding to help establish this program which is now a pilot program under the Myaamia Education Office of the Miami Tribe of Oklahoma.
