Penobscot Syllabics (ᑆᕋᕚᓂᐤᑄᐤᓯᐤᔨᕕ)

The Penobscot Syllabics system was devised by Connor Flood to write the language of his grandmother's people, Pânawâhtpskewî (better known as Penobscot), an Eastern Abenaki language that was spoken in Maine in the USA until the 1990s and which is being revived. It uses Canadian Aboriginal Syllabics, a syllabary used for various North American indigenous languages, based on Eastern Cree Syllabics, Quechua Syllabics and Blackfoot.
