The Lodgepole Center; Kairos Blanket Exercise Facilitator, Tim Fox and ACAD Elder Casey Eaglespeaker, invite you to join us in an interactive, educational journey through the history of Canada, experienced through the lens of the Indigenous peoples. Please join us as we participate in the KAIROS Blanket Exercise.

The KAIROS Blanket Exercise is an interactive learning experience that covers over 500 years of Indigenous history in roughly two hours. The participants of the exercise, take on the role of the Indigenous peoples of Canada, while the facilitators take the role of colonizers. Blankets are utilized to represent Indigenous lands, and as time progresses from pre-contact to colonization, blankets are removed as Indigenous lands are occupied by the colonizers.

This powerful and educational interactive exercise will be offered at ACAD’s Lodgepole Center on March 29 at 1 p.m., Room 375. We have limited space so participants will be selected on a first come first basis.

Being a participant in the ReconciliACTION occurring here at ACAD, and across this great country; is our responsibility as educators, leaders and Canadians.

Come. Learn. Share.
