The Passamaquoddy Language of the Wabanaki Indians
Passamaquoddy is a unique language spoken by the Wabanaki Indians of northern Maine, with only a few hundred native speakers left. Molly Neptune Parker and her grandson, George Neptune, are master basket weavers who use this art as a vehicle for teaching the Passamaquoddy language. Here they talk about the distinguishing characteristics of their language and the importance of preserving and sustaining it for future generations.
