KAIROS Blanket Exercise: The Relationship Between Indigenous and Non-Indigenous Peoples

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

The KAIROS Blanket Exercise is an interactive learning experience that builds awareness and understanding of our shared history as Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Canada by having participants literally walk through situations that include pre-contact, treaty-making, colonization and resistance. Participants step onto blankets representing the land, and into the role of First Nations, Inuit and later Métis peoples. They are drawn into their roles by reading scrolls and carrying cards which ultimately determine their outcomes. Facilitators read a script and assume the role of Narrator and European settlers. By engaging on an emotional and intellectual level, the exercise contributes to a movement for reconciliation through education across the country.

Note: Participation is limited to 80 spots on a first-come, first-served basis. No pre-registration is available.
