The Myaamia Experience and the War of 1812

For Myaamia people the War of 1812 conflict was a civil war in that it divided villages over the choice between siding with the Americans, the British and Tecumseh, or staying neutral. As such, the Myaamia historical experience provides a diverse perspective on the fracturing nature of the conflict. This presentation will examine “National” or “Tribal” boundaries and identities, peace and war as changing relationships between peoples, the results of war including land sessions and removals, and the violence of starvation, deprivation, and degradation that followed.

The presentation will conclude with a discussion of memory vs. history and how the understanding of the War of 1812 by the Myaamia people compares to the traditional historical record.

About the presenter: George Ironstrack has participated in Myaamia language renewal projects as both a student and a teacher for the past fourteen years. In July 2008, George joined the Myaamia Project as Assistant Director and Education Coordinator. Originally from Chicago, George, Tamise, their son Kai Matthias, and daughter Mirin Royce all currently make their home in Oxford, OH. George is a citizen of the Miami Tribe of Oklahoma and has assisted in the organization and administration of the Tribe’s Eewansaapita Summer Educational Experience since its inception in 2005. George received an M.A. in Origins and History of the United States from the Department of History at Miami University.

Why is War so Popular in American History

Dr. Amanda McVety from the Department of History at Miami University will examine the way that Americans have remembered and memorialized the conflicts of their past. Using King Philip’s War as the key example, this webinar will explore how both the history and the meaning of the war changed over time as the American public reinterpreted its colonial past during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Through the content session with Dr. McVety, as well as the historical thinking session with Creative Learning Engineer Mark Butler, participants will learn more about why people tend to view wars as the definitive moments of their national past.

About the presenter: Dr. McVety’s interests lie at the intersection of international relations, science, economics, and the environment. Her book project, Enlightened Aid: U.S. Development as Foreign Policy in Ethiopia, examines the intellectual and political origins of Point Four, the first American aid program for the “underdeveloped world,” and its operations in Ethiopia. She is currently researching the international effort to eradicate rinderpest (cattle plague), which began in 1945 and announced success in 2011. Her next book project will look at the impact of human-directed development on the nonhuman–a topic that she will be exploring as an Altman Fellow with the Miami University Humanities Center during the 2012-13 academic year.
