The KAIROS Blanket Exercise, led by KAIROS facilitators

Trinity-St. Andrew's United Church, Brighton Ontario

Date: Feb 2, 2020

Time: 12:30 to 3:30

 

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.

Rather than experiencing a lecture or audiovisual presentation, participants are invited to stand on a series of blankets, which represent the original territories of First Nations. KAIROS Facilitators then begin a narrative that requires the attendees to adopt the persona of indigenous peoples, namely as representatives of all First Nations in Canada. This experiential learning activity traces the impact of 500 years of colonialism on indigenous people in what we now call Canada. As the exercise unfolds, attendees see their land and their populations drastically altered by the actions and decisions of colonizers.
