Blanket Exercise with Elaine Kicknosway

Workshops & Activities

June 22 @ 10:30 am - 11:30 am

COST: Free (Pre-registration required)
AGE: 15+
DURATION: 1 hour

The Blanket Exercise is based on Indigenous methodologies and the goal is to build understanding about our shared history as Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Canada by walking through pre-contact, treaty-making, colonization and resistance. Everyone is actively involved as they step onto blankets that represent the land, and into the role of First Nations, Inuit and later Métis peoples. By engaging on an emotional and intellectual level, the Blanket Exercise effectively educates and increases empathy.
