Passamaquoddy-Wolastoqey trip

Peter Grishin, Cora Lesure, and Norvin Richards spent the weekend of September 10-11 in Fredericton, New Brunswick, at the Wolastoqey Elder and Youth Gathering (“Nankomiptasu: Wolastoqewiyik Carry Language to Future Generations”).  We heard presentations related to language revival and maintenance, including discussions of several exciting projects that are under way; we also had a chance to spend time with the elders as they sat around a table telling stories in Passamaquoddy-Wolastoqey late into the night.  Many thanks to Roger Paul (MS ‘20) for telling us about this event!
