KAIROS Virtual Blanket Exercise

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. 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.

*Please note: participants must be able to join this activity using a laptop, tablet or desktop. The Zoom phone app is not compatible with this activity.
