There are many stories and legends that surround the Thanksgiving holiday, it can often be difficult to discern what is fact and what is fiction. Join Museum Educator George Neptune for a reading of the children’s book, Thanks to the Animals, written by Allen Sockabasin, Passamaquoddy, and an activity that focuses on Passamaquoddy animal names. In the Passamaquoddy language, animals are named for certain behaviors or physical characteristics — is there an animal in your life that you are particularly thankful for? Re-name your favorite animal, and see if the new name can be translated into Passamaquoddy! Free and open to the public.
