Dancing the past and future waterways of salmon migration in Michi Saagiig territory.

Inspired by the song “she sang them home” by Michi Saagiig scholar and storyteller Dr. Leanne Simpson—about the first salmon returning to the territory one hundred years from now—this film follows dancer and scholar Jenn Cole and myself as we renew our relationships with the waterways of the song.
