KAIROS BLANKET EXERCISE
 

The KAIROS Blanket Exercise is an interactive learning experience that teaches the Indigenous rights history we’re rarely taught. Developed in response to the 1996 Report of the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples—which recommended education on Canadian-Indigenous history as one of the key steps to reconciliation.  The Blanket Exercise covers over 500 years of history in a 3 hr exercise ending with a talking circle.
