Immersive Indigenous History: KAIROS Blanket Exercise
The KAIROS Blanket Exercise is an opportunity to explore settler-colonialism through an activity that introduces the challenges that Indigenous peoples have historically and continue to face since European contact. Using representative items, participants will be taken through a condensed, summarized version of the colonial history of Canada. Participants will learn that all living in this country have lost out by not being taught all sides of our shared history. Following the Blanket Exercise, a Sharing Circle will give participants the opportunity to discuss these issues and to talk about what they have learned.
Should you fail to withdraw 48+ hours in advance, thereby preventing your colleagues on the waitlist from filling in your spot, your library account will be charged $10 per missed workshop.
