Aboriginal Blanket Exercise

June 26, 2017

The Blanket Exercise is a teaching tool to share the historic and contemporary relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Canada.  Participants take on the roles of Indigenous peoples in Canada.  Standing on blankets that represent the land, they walk through pre-contact, treaty-making, colonization and resisitance.  By engaging on an emotional and intellectual level, the Blanket Exercise effectively educates and increases empathy.

Free to attend.
