15th Day of Whippoorwill Moon (2020)
’15 wiihkoowia kiilhswa (2020)’

Today, it’s  a little chilly (49) and raining continuously in the Great Miami River Valley.
‘noonki kaahkiihkwe tikawi neepanki (49) šeepilaanki ahsenisiipionki.’

Tonight, the Whippoorwill Moon is full (waning). Y’all plant corn!
‘noonki peehkonteeki waawiyiisita wiihkoowia kiilhswa (peemineeta). ansiwaatooko miincipi!’

    Hi. I am still researching my family tree in regard to the Miami Indians. I am curious, is the name Palonne, mean anything in their language? I have seen the name several times in peoples research with no meaning attached. Thank you for your time.

    1. aya ‘Greetings’ Kimberly, Palonne doesn’t look like a Myaamia name. Our names almost always end with the sound “a.” Have you observed this word on a primary source document? Historical context might help determine what the word means.
