Aboriginal Peoples Week: Building Reconciliation. Edward Allen, Aboriginal Cultural Education Coordinator with the Aboriginal Resource Office will lead participants in the Blanket Exercise. The Blanket Exercise is a participatory workshop developed by KAIROS to raise awareness and understanding of the nation to nation relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in what is now known as Canada. The Blanket Exercise is based on the major themes and findings of the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples and will help new learners begin to recognize the impacts of colonization over time. All are welcome to participate.
