Beothuk Body Parts
The Beothuk language has long been extinct, so these vocabulary words come from 18th- and 19th-century sources and may well have some

Note: The photographs on this page are stock images of acclaimed Native actors
Adam Beach and Irene Bedard.
using pictures of contemporary Native celebrities makes this lesson more attractive to kids.
To the best of our knowledge this non-profit educational use of the photographs is permitted.
