Explore the historic and contemporary relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Canada through the Indigenous Blanket Exercise. It is an interactive learning experience that builds awareness and understanding of our shared history by having participants literally walk through situations that include pre-contact, treaty-making, colonization and resistance. Participants step onto blankets representing the land, and into the role of First Nations, Inuit and later Métis peoples. This is always an immensely powerful experience for Cannexus delegates and books up quickly.
