Where the Crow Will Be Forever
History Professor Keith R. Burich, PhD, director of The American Indian Center, was featured in a Canisius College Video Institute documentary that explores the history of the Native American Crow tribe and life on its reservation. “Where the Crow Will Be Forever,” a 30-minute film, was produced by two Video Institute members who were part of a student trip to the Montana Crow reservation.
The student group, led by Burich, celebrated at Crow Fair, which is the largest Northern Native American gathering. Students also learned about life on the reservation through first-hand experiences and conversations with members of the Crow tribe.
Communication studies major Ashley Fike ’13 and digital media arts major Lauren Mosier ’13 traveled with Burich and the Canisius contingent to produce the documentary.
