date: Wednesday, May 16, 6:30-9:00 pm
KAIROS Blanket Exercise: Participants step onto blankets representing the land, and into the role of First Nations, Inuit and later Métis peoples. Facilitators read the script and assume the role of European explorers and settlers. The exercise 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. Exercise is followed by a Talking Circle led by an Indigenous Elder.
