How did Miami get its name?
Miami Florida, USA, was officially incorporated as a city on July 28, 1896 with a population of just over 300. It was named for the nearby Miami River, itself named for the Mayaimi Indians who previously lived around Lake Okeechobee. From the Miami Indian tribe. Thought by anthropologists to be descendants of the Mississippian culture. Miami is named after the Miami River. A lot of things in Florida are named after native American tribes and of spanish origan...hope that helps
Who were the first known inhabitants of Indiana?
When European explorers entered the region in 1679, only a few hundred Native Americans remained. Most belonged to the Miami tribe. Native American Indians migrated west into Indiana as European settlers took their lands during the late 1600s. The Shawnee, Miami, Delaware, Mahican, and Potawatomi tribes were just a few of these tribes.

What is the name of the Miami Indians?
The tribe today known as the Miami people called themselves Myaamiaki, meaning "downstream people" or Mihtohseeniaki, meaning "the people". They originally occupied lands in the areas that became Ohio, Michigan, Indiana and Illinois. They had several component sub-tribes, including the Wea and Piankashaw The Miami tribe has no connection at all with the place name of Miami in Florida, which is named for an unrelated tribal group (the Mayaimi).

Asked in Algonquian Indians
What do algonquian wear?
"Algonquian" is not the name of a tribe but the name of a very large group of related languages, used by some of the tribes of the Great Plains (for example Blackfoot, Arapaho, Cheyenne), by many tribes of the Midwest (Sauk and Fox, Illinois, Miami, Shawnee, Kickapoo and others) tribes of the far north (Cree, Agonkin, Ojibwe and others) and along most of the eastern coast of North America: Powhatan, Mohegan, Wampanoag, Mahican, Delaware, Maliseet and many, many more. Naturally the Plains tribes were not culturally the same as the Great Lakes tribes, who were not the same as the east coast tribes; each had their own clothing, traditions, religions and so on. It is therefore impossible to answer your question.
