The cover of "A Passamaquoddy-Maliseet Dictionary"

Conversations With Maine host Frank Ferrel learns about The Passamaquoddy-Maliseet Language Dictionary from authors David Francis, a Passamaquoddy elder at Sipayik (Pleasant Point), near Eastport and Robert Leavitt, the now retired Director of the Mi'kmaq-Maliseet Institute at the University of New Brunswick.




The Dictionary includes over 18,000 words in 1200 pages and took 7 years of research to complete. The book was recently short listed for an Atlantic Book Award in Canada.
