The Blanket Exercise is a participatory workshop in which educators will experience over 500 years of history by taking on the roles of Indigenous peoples in Canada. Standing on blankets that represent the land, they will walk through time and explore the impacts of colonization, treaty-making, and modern legislation. By engaging participants on an emotional and intellectual level, this workshop is a powerful tool for increasing empathy and understanding.
