As part of the Indigenous Research Showcase, we will be offering a Blanket Exercise.  Registration is open to all faculty, staff and students.

The Kairos Blanket Exercise was developed in collaboration with Indigenous Elders, knowledge keepers and eduactors to foster truth, understanding, respect and reconciliation among Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples.  This exercise is a powerful educational tool that will be helpful to anyone wanting to know more abouth 500 years of history throughout the perspective of Indigenous peoples.  Come prepared for a safe space in which to ask questions and learn together.

Trigger Warning:  The Blanket Exercise touches on many painful experiences and as a result strong emotions can surface.  Helath support will be available.
