Miami Tribe of Oklahoma announces Trust status

From reports

The federally recognized Miami Tribe of Oklahoma today announced that trust status has been approved for the Tribe’s 45 acres of land in Kiihkayonki-Fort Wayne, IN. The parcel of land, known to the Tribe as Peehkahkionki — the beautiful place — was purchased by the Tribe in 2021 to serve as a community gathering and education space and as the new location of the Tribe’s Cultural Resources Extension Office in the homeland region.
The Miami Nation, the Miami Tribe of Oklahoma, was forcibly removed from its Indiana homeland in October 1846. After 178 years, the Tribe celebrates the return of this parcel of land to trust status and marks the achievement as another significant step in its cultural revitalization work.
