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.

With 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 Society, a group of people bringing the stories of Aboriginals to the spotlight.

Elder in the Making is an informative expose into the complexity of Aboriginal culture and the historical Treaty 7 agreement, which gave the First Nations people in Southern Alberta a reserve but ceded their ownerships rights to their traditional territory.

The film educates, 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 Aboriginals to the forefront.
