Talawanda: Myaamia Culture, Imagery Lessons Added To ‘Ohio As America’ Curriculum

WVXU Cincinnati |

Fourth grade is when Ohio students learn about state history, usually focused on just that – history. Now a curriculum developed by Miami University and the Myaamia Center focusing on the modern-day culture and imagery of the Miami Nation is being added.

The lessons will be taught in the Talawanda school district and will be available to teachers statewide in the Ohio As America 4th grade online textbook provided to more than 20,000 students in 91 districts by Ohio History Connection. Two 50-minute lessons focus on the Miami Nation’s history, culture and imagery, specifically ribbon-work – the art of creating intricate geometric patterns from ribbons.
