Last chance to participate for the 2017-18 academic year!

The KAIROS Blanket Exercise: A Step on the Path to Reconciliation

  • Engage on an intellectual and emotional level with five hundred years of Indigenous-Settler history in a 1.5 hour workshop

  • Take on the roles of Indigenous people through pre-contact, treaty-making, colonization and resistance

  • Gain a better understanding of how law was manipulated to steal land from and otherwise harm First Nation, Inuit and Métis people and how these historical wrongs are directly connected to the social, economic and legal issues many Indigenous people face today

  • Learn how Indigenous people have resisted assimilation and how they continue to do so
