Savannah “Savvy” Simon is on a mission to start a Mi’kmaq language revolution. Uytae Lee made this video companion piece to Lewis Rendell’s Coast feature “Sage against the machine.” In it, Simon says a few words—in both Mi’kmaq and English—shows off some dance moves and gives a behind-the-scenes glimpse into a Coast cover shoot with photographer Jordan Blackburn.
