This website would not have been possible without the considerable contributions of several people and organizations.


The overall project would not have been possible without a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services. The Institute of Museum and Library Services is the primary source of federal support for the nation’s 123,000 libraries and 17,500 museums. The Institute's mission is to create strong libraries and museums that connect people to information and ideas.


The website was developed by Dr. Douglas Troy's CSE Capstone class, consisting of Chris Edester, Chris Mazzocco, Brent Mowery, and Phillip Osment. They worked with the Myaamia Project to ensure the satisfaction of the granting requirements. mihši neewe!
