Kairos Blanket Exercise
KAIROS Blanket Exercise (KBE) 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. It is a unique participatory activity that fosters truth, understand and respect.
Friday, October 28 | 10am-1pm
Location: Canad Inns, Ambassador H
Registration Deadline: Tuesday, October 25, 2022
Maximum 40 participants.
Registration is required as we cannot guarantee you will be able to participate in the session if you show up day-of.
Created in 1997 by the Aboriginal Rights Coalition (ARC), a precursor to KAIROS, the KBE was intended to introduce Canadians to the major themes and findings of the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples (RCAP).
ARC brought together Indigenous Elders and educators with allies who wanted to make sure that RCAP and its recommendations were not shelved and forgotten. The KBE is built on the foundation of these long standing, collaborative initiatives and relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people to raise awareness of continuing injustices and impacts of colonization, and to promote further learning.
For over almost 25 years, ARC and now KAIROS have guided the KBEs development with the leadership of Indigenous Elders and facilitators. The script has been updated numerous times to reflect current events, including most recently the final reports of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada and the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls.
