KAIROS Blanket Exercise Teaching & Sharing Circles: registration is open
‘Building Positive Relationships between Indigenous & non-Indigenous Peoples’
Led by Indigenous Knowledge Keepers with extensive experience facilitating the KAIROS Blanket Exercise (KBE), these interactive Zoom-based sessions aim to build positive relations between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people through truth, sharing, and open dialogue. Based in an Indigenous-world view and using Indigenous teachings and protocols, this new series addresses both historical and contemporary topics in an honest and personal way.
The topics have been selected to complement the KAIROS Blanket Exercise and can serve as an introduction before your group experiences the in-person or virtual KBE, or enable you to delve more deeply into specific topics after the KBE.
Ideal for schools, educational institutions, and organizations committed to the goals of the Truth & Reconciliation Commission of Canada, this new program blends historical data and facts with personal accounts and stories, thus providing a deeper and more meaningful way to learn about truth and reconciliation.
The series is offered either through individual registration (see the Fall 2020 schedule below) or can be custom delivered to your organization/group.
Each of these 2-hour Zoom-based, interactive sessions are led by an experienced KBE Indigenous facilitator/Knowledge Keeper. The cost for registering is $25 per session. Elders may attend these events free of charge (please select “Elder” when you register). Registration is limited and so please register early to ensure your spot. Please see below for the registration links.
