Event description

Description

"The Kairos Blanket Exercise program is a unique, participatory history lesson - developed in collaboration with Indigenous Elders, knowledge keepers and educators - that fosters truth, understanding, respect and reconciliation among Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples." (www.kairosblanketexercise.org)

It is now available as a workshop in many communities across Canada.

Our event will be facilitated by Mireille LaPointe, past chief of Ardoch Algonquin First Nation, co-chair of the Indigenous Health Council, and a high school teacher in Perth. Following a short break once the "exercise" has been completed, we will debrief our experience, using a Talking Circle format. The morning will finish with a community feast providing more time to continue the conversation informally.

Participants are invited to come well rested with an open mind, prepared for a new learning experience. Pre-registration is required since space is limited and a heart donation is appreciated.

The Blanket Exercise is March 30, from 9:30 to 1:00, at the Almonte United Church hall, 106 Elgin St., Almonte. The inclement weather date is April 6.
