aacimwahkionkonci 'A Land of Stories' A Web-based GIS Learning Tool for Myaamia Geospatial Data

The development of a web-based historical atlas containing thousands of documents pertaining to Native land transactions that involve the Miami Tribe from the late-eighteenth to early-twentieth century.  The documents represent transactions in Ohio, Indiana, Illinois, Kansas, and Oklahoma.

The proposed project, titled Aacimwahkionkonci ‘Land of Stories,’ will synthesize primary resource materials and years of historical research on Miami Tribe land transactions into an interactive historical atlas, following resettlement patterns through three states where the Miami Nation has resided over time. As a web-based GIS and historical educational resource, the Aacimwahkionkonci Project will allow users to examine and interpret thousands of historical records, documenting how real estate left Miami Tribe ownership through the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. As a educational tool, the Aacimwahkionkonci Project will provide tribal members, the general public, and current landowners access to this rich history and re-establish the connection between people, places and the narratives that define their interactions over time.
