The KAIROS Blanket Exercise invites you explore the historic and contemporary relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Canada.

Participation is limited to 60 spots on a first-come, first-served basis.

About the KAIROS Blanket Exercise and how it works:

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 KAIROS Blanket Exercise effectively educates while increasing empathy. It reaches both the mind and the heart. It is contributing to a movement for reconciliation through education across the country.

Note: this session runs until 5:45 pm.
