The Larry and Denise Herr Lectures in the Humanities feature presentations by highly qualified speakers on issues of public interest. The lectures provide a forum for dialogue, open discussion, and reasoned debate in Central Alberta. The lecture series is named after two of Burman University’s retired professors, Dr. Denise Herr and Dr. Larry Herr.
Director Chris Hsiung will screen his award-winning film “Elder in the Making.” He will be joined by author and researcher Duane Mistaken Chief for a conversation about the long road to reconciliation between indigenous and non-indigenous people. “Elder in the Making” documents the journey of two young urban dwellers, one a Blackfoot aboriginal named Cowboy and the other a Chinese Canadian newcomer named Chris, who embark on a spiritual journey across traditional Blackfoot territory.
