Native American Tribes Nations and Confederacies: Miami

The Miami tribe of Oklahoma are an Eastern Woodlands tribe, who traditionally spoke the Miami-Illinois language.

The Miami society was divided into clans led by hereditary chiefs. They were farmers and were known for a unique type of white corn, and they played the double ball, the moccasin game, and darts.

Like many other Oklahoma tribes, the Miami endured their communal lands being broken up by the Dawes Act, and their tribal government destroyed by the Curtis Act of 1898.
