All My Relations Series – Kairos Blanket Exercise

Sep 13 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

The Kairos Blanket Exercise (KBE) is developed in collaboration with Indigenous Knowledge Keepers and educators, and is an interactive and experiential teaching tool that explores the historic and contemporary relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in the land we now know as Canada.

During this workshop, participants walk on blankets representing the land and into the role of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples. They are guided by trained facilitators, including an Indigenous Elder, who cover pre-contact, treaty-making, colonization, resistance and much more. Participants read scrolls and respond to cues in the script. The KBE concludes with a debriefing, conducted as a talking circle.

All participants should bring along a blanket that can be laid on the floor and walked on in socks or bare feet. Participants will be asked to remove their shoes and are welcome to bring slippers if desired. Space is limited and you can RSVP by calling MHV or booking using the form below. Limited spots available.
