Event Details

Ages 18+

Held over Zoom

Developed in collaboration with Indigenous Elders, Knowledge Keepers and educators, the KAIROS Blanket Exercise is an interactive & experiential teaching tool that explores the relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in the land we now know as Canada. Participants are guided by trained facilitators who work from a script that covers pre-contact, treaty-making, colonization, resistance and much more. The exercise concludes with a talking circle, during which participants discuss the learning experience and deepen their understanding.

This workshop will be held virtually over Zoom. As spots are limited, registration is required in advance. Please email to secure your spot!

Trigger warning: The KAIROS Blanket Exercise walks through difficult life experiences, such as Indian Residential Schools, the Sixties Scoop and other instances of colonial violence and policies that have negatively affected Indigenous Peoples.
