A Conversation with Carmen Lansdowne
(Recorded live at the American Academy of Religion)
Dr. Roberto and Rev. Anna got to spend some time together in Denver, CO during the American Academy of Religion. This event, the largest gathering of academics whose studies are centered on religion, gave us the opportunity to record several episodes with guests that we should all be paying attention to. For each of these guests, we ask them one, big question.
This episode introduces you to Carmen Lansdowne, 44th Moderator in the United Church of Canada. Ordained in 2007, the Rev. Dr. Lansdowne is only the second Indigenous person to be elected Moderator, following the Very Rev. Stan McKay, who served as Moderator 1992‒1994. A member of the Heiltsuk First Nation, she was born in Alert Bay, British Columbia, and has been a lifelong member of the United Church. She is committed to an Indigenous way of being in the world. In this conversation, we ask Carmen the question "how do we include indigeneity in collective liberation conversations?"
