Valuable training so you can deliver the Blanket Exercise in your comunity!
ABOUT THE BLANKET EXERCISE: The Blanket Exercise is based on participatory popular education methodology and the goal is to build understanding about our shared history as Indigenous and non indigenous peoples in Canada by walking through pre-contract, treaty-making, cononization and resistance. Everyone is actively involved as they step into blankets that represent the land, and into the role of First Nations, Inuit and later Metis peoples. By engaging on an emotional and intellectual level, the Blanket Exercise effectively educates and increases empathy.
Space is limited! Registration Deadline is November 6, 2019
