Maliseet Paddle Carving Video

The Passamaquoddy-Maliseet Language Portal is on online dictionary resource with an extensive archive of videos of conversations and activities of Passamaquoddy-Maliseet speakers.

Within their pages is an embedded video showing a conversation about carving and the native style of paddling titled "I could paddle all day long" where the two elders share paddle making knowledge and chuckle about how most people can't paddle straight...I hear that! Here are some screen shots...

Also found out the Passamaquoddy - Maliseet name for Canoe Paddle is tahakon based on their searchable online dictionary.
