I realize there is an existent thread for Algonquian languages but I would like to make a thread specifically for the Miami-Illinois language because it is the only Algonquian and/or NAIL language which I find relevant to my current interests. I'm going to use this thread to compile whatever resources and information I find. I would love input from other NAIL enthusiasts too! :D

Be all means, post away.
I haven't looked a great deal into Miami-Illinois, but I have checked around, and haven't found much.
Hopefully you'll have better luck.
There is stuff out there for Mohegan, which is being revived (to some degree), so hopefully some stuff for Miami will show up as well.

It goes rather unsuccessful. Thus far I've only found the same resources from the Miami links you already posted on another thread. (Although I have struck some luck with a French-Miami dictionary.)

Damn, that's too bad. :(
Sometimes all you can find is a dictionary. That's about all I can find for Cheyenne and Mohegan (and a bit of grammar) thus far.

I'm curious, why did you pick Miami? (No, not asking cause of the lack of resources)

If you want to buy (or check out from a library) books as well as use online resources, I would suggest looking into The Miami-Illinois Language by David Costa. I've heard that it's pretty good.

Aya! I've been looking for as much free material available online as I can but so far it seems I'll have to work on getting Handy's Vocabulary of Miami by Charles N. Handy and Elements of a Miami-Illinois Grammar by John Gilmary Shea. (God willing.) The book whose link you offered wouldn't be as much of a priority plus it seems more suited to the likes of professional linguists but it would be a great extension to the ideal Miami potpourri once I get those first two books!
