Item Description

Abenaki Indian Legends, Grammar and Place Names 

A reprint published in 2014 of Henry Lorne Masta's book first published in 1932. The book contains over a dozen traditional stories told in the Abenaki language and English. It also has a complete grammar and examines many place names with Abenaki origin. Abenaki is a member of the Algonquian family and is closely related to the Penobscot and Maliseet languages of Maine. There are only a handful of fluent speakers, however efforts are ongoing to preserve this indigenous New England language.
