INI101: KAIROS Blanket Exercise Export this event to calendar

Thursday, January 23, 2020 — 2:00 PM to 4:30 PM EST

Who: Students, Faculty, Staff

What: The KAIROS Blanket Exercise (KBE) program is a unique, interactive and participatory history lesson developed in collaboration with Indigenous elders, knowledge keepers, and educators. This experiential workshop aims to foster understanding about our shared history as Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples.

How: During the KBE, you will move along blankets representing the land and into the role of First Nations, Inuit, and Métis peoples. By reading scrolls and carrying cards you experience situations that include pre-contact, treaty-making, colonization, and resistance. Facilitators guide you through the workshop. The exercise concludes with a debriefing, conducted as a “talking circle,” during which you discuss the learning experience, process feelings, ask questions, share insights, and deepen your understanding.
