Emma Stevens - Blackbird (Mi'kmaq)

The International Year of Indigenous Languages is a United Nations observance in 2019 to raise awareness of the consequences of the endangerment of Indigenous Languages across the world, with an aim to establish a link between language, development, peace, and reconciliation.

To bring awareness to this important cause, students at Allison Bernard Memorial High School in Eskasoni, Cape Breton recorded Paul McCartney’s Blackbird in their native Mi’kmaq language.
