Elder in the Making
Date & Time: June 19, 2017 at 7:00 pm
Location: 5007 - 50 Avenue

Description:
With the unjust stereotypes of Canada's Aboriginal population in mind, first generation Chinese-Canadian filmmaker Chris Hsiung embarks on a journey of discovery deep into Alberta's Blackfoot territory.

Featuring an underlying theme of reconciliation, Hsiung sets out to explore the Blackfoot Nation, discovering that he has a significant heritage in common with his Aboriginal guide. The film is inspired by the Making Treaty 7 Cultural Societya group of people bringing the stories of Aboriginals to the spotlight.

Elder in the Making is an informative exposé into the complexity of Aboriginal Culture and the historical Treaty 7 agreement, which gave the First Nations in Southern Alberta a reserve but required them to cede the ownership rights to their traditional territory.

The film explores the culture of the Blackfoot Nation, and highlights the importance of the Making Treaty 7 Cultural Society, a group of musicians, artists, elders, and playwrights trying to bring the stories of First Nations to the forefront.
