The nine tribes building is an apartment complex in my town. It represents the 9 tribes of the area: Eastern Shawnee, Miami, Modoc, Ottawa, Peoria, Quapaw, Seneca-Cayuga [Holla! :)], Shawnee, and Wyandotte. When I was very young my Great Aunt Joyce lived in this building. I remember going to see her often and as a kid I remember thinking how big the building. Now the building doesn't seem as tall, but it still holds good memories of my visits to Aunt Joyce. Miss you Aunt Joyce!
