“Oklahoma to Paris and Back Again: Peewaalia and Myaamia Stories of Minohsayaki ‘Painted Hide Robes’

Join in conversation with George Ironstrack, Assistant Director of the Myaamia Center at Miami University and citizen of the Miami Tribe of Oklahoma (Myaamia), and Elizabeth Ellis, Associate Professor of History at Princeton University, and citizen of the Peoria Tribe of Indians of Oklahoma (Peewaalia) about minohsayaki ‘Painted Robes’, an art form that was practiced by both the Peewaaliaki and Myaamiaki before contact with Europeans in the late 1600s and early 1700s.

This discussion will help frame the research, reconnection, and the reclamation of cultural heritage with minohsayaki ‘Painted Robes’, with particular emphasis on examples in a Parisian museum collection.  This webinar will highlight RCCAM’s featured exhibition, Minohsayaki ‘Painted Robes’: A Peewaalia and Myaamia Story of Reclamation.  Using a community-curated approach, this exhibition is created in the voices of Peewaaliaki ‘Peoria Indian’ and Myaamiaki ‘Miami Indian’ people.
