The Miami Indians of Indiana


The Miami Indians of Indiana: A Persistent People, 1654–1994
By Stewart Rafert

Now scattered in small communities in northern Indiana, the Eastern Miami Indians, once a well-known tribe, have lived in undeserved obscurity since the 1840s. In recent years they have become more visible as they have sought restoration of treaty rights and have revitalized their culture. The post-removal history of the Indiana Miami tribe is a rich texture of social, legal, and economic history, much enhanced by folklore and a rich series of photographic images. In The Miami Indians of Indiana: A Persistent People, 1654–1994, Rafert explores the history and culture of the Miami Indians.

Softcover, 358 pages. Indiana Historical Society, 1996. ISBN 0871951320.
