The Blanket Exercise is an interactive, learning experience about the historic and contemporary relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people. It teaches the history we were rarely taught in school. The Blanket Exercise covers over 500 years of history in a 1.5 hour participatory workshop.
The narrators will guide participants through pre-contact, treaty-making, colonization and resistance. By engaging on an emotional and intellectual level, the Blanket Exercise effectively educates and increases our understanding and empathy towards others. The exercise is followed by a talking circle in which participants have the opportunity to discuss the experience as a group.
This Workshop is for Adults Only
