Myaamia Calendar Project Phase II: Lunar Calendar Calibration

by Voros, Craig Matthew

Abstract (Summary)
This practicum report is a continuation of the Myaamia Lunar Calendar Project and represents Phase II of the project. Phase II continued the background research of Phase I of the project, which performed an extensive literature search of the organisms found within the Myaamia lunar calendar. ‘Phase II: Lunar Calendar Calibration’ examined other lunar calendars to discover how a lunar-based time keeping method functions and provide suggestions to maintain calibration. ‘Phase II: Using New Technology to Build Mutual Learning’ explores a methodology to share the information found from Phase I and II and encourage participation with the Myaamia community and other interested parties. A website and blog was created in order to provide a technologically facilitated interface for tribe members. This project is a part of the Myaamia Project, which allows students, staff, and professors from Miami University to participate in cultural restoration projects in cooperation with the Nation.
