On Thursday, June 13th, at 7 PM, Pacific Youth will be hosting a Blanket Exercise, and ALL are invited to attend.
During this powerful and life transformative event, we will have the opportunity to participate in an "exercise" that covers more than 500 years in a 90-minute experiential workshop that aims to foster understanding about our shared history as Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples.
The Blanket Exercise will offer participants the opportunity to walk on blankets representing the land and into the role of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples by reading scrolls and carrying cards which ultimately determine their outcome as they literally ‘walk’ through situations that include pre-contact, treaty-making, colonization and resistance.
By engaging participants on both emotional and intellectual levels, Blanket Exercises are able to both educate and create understanding between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples … in Canada and throughout the world!
This event is for all who are interested!
