Remember Me - Tomah Joseph's Gift to Franklin Roosevelt - Grades : 3 - 7
Franklin Delano Roosevelt, who would grow up to be the 32nd president of the United States, joyfully spent his boyhood summers on Campobello Island.
There he met Tomah Joseph, a Passamaquoddy elder and former chief who made his living as a guide, birchbark canoe builder, and basket maker. The beautifully decorated birchbark canoe that Tomah Joseph made for Franklin remains at Campobello, a tangible reminder of this special friendship.
