The Kairos Blanket Exercise at Fairlawn in 2018 was an interactive learning experience teaching the history of indigenous rights that we’re rarely taught.
The Blanket Exercise is a tool developed in 1997 by Kairos : Canadian Ecumenical Justice Initiatives in which participants learn about European colonization of Turtle Island (North America), the accompanying dispossession of Indigenous peoples (reflected by the steady removal of blankets upon which participants stand) and Indigenous resistance and efforts to reclaim land and rights, covering over 500 years of history in a participatory workshop.
