Located in the Sipayik region of Maine, the Waponahki Museum displays items relating Passamaquoddy Indian culture and history, most donated by area residents. Several old-fashioned tin postcards are reproduced, making up a visual wall display; a large collection of irreplaceable and one-of-a-kind artifacts (many over 100 years old) include a 17-foot birch-bark canoe, snowshoes, hand-woven baskets, and a variety of antique tools used by the Skicinuwok.
A resource/language room provides a workplace for bilingual education programs and the ongoing project of translating the Passamaquoddy language into writing; no written version of this 'spiritually-based' language existed prior to 1970. Books and tapes preserving this unique language are also available here. Another room features life-size plaster likenesses of actual Passamaquoddy people, dressed in traditional attire, among which appear honored tribal elders. The museum is open by appointment.
