Passamaquoddy language and culture survive

At Campobello Island, Franklin D. Roosevelt's summer home in New Brunswick, now jointly administered as an international park by the US and Canada, a display about the local Passamaquoddy Indians is in three languages: English, French and transliterated Passamaquoddy. Passamaquoddy chief Tomah Jospeh was a childhood friend of FDR. Photo in bottom left of display shows adult FDR shaking hands with Joseph's sucessor, Chief William Neptune, pictured wearing a Plains Indian war bonnet (a bit of a culturally inappropriate cliché for the camera).
