St. Mary’s Parish Council (Chilliwack, BC) offered the KAIROS Blanket Exercise in October. The KAIROS Blanket Exercise is a workshop that explores the relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Canada. Blankets arranged on the floor represent the land and participants are invited to step into the roles of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples.
53 Participants were taken through an interactive and visual history lesson by three educators. Through listening, education and understanding reconciliation is possible.
