MYAAMIA LUNAR CALENDAR PROJECT PHASE II: USING NEW TECHNOLOGY TO BUILD MUTUAL LEARNING

by Wigren, Laura

Abstract (Summary)
This practicum report is a continuation of the Myaamia Lunar Calendar Project and represents Phase II of the project. Phase II continues the background research of Phase I, which encompassed an extensive literature search of organisms found within the Myaamia lunar calendar. 'Phase II: Lunar Calendar Calibration' examines other lunar calendars to provide insight into the various ways in which a lunar-based time keeping method functions and provides suggestions for the practical maintenance of real-time calibration. The 'Phase II: Using New Technology to Build Mutual Learning' project explores a methodology for sharing information found from Phase I and II and encourages participation with the Myaamia community. A website and blog were created to provide a technologically facilitated interface for tribe members. This project is 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.
