ABOUT BLANKET EXERCISES
In this two* hour participatory workshop, we will take you through pre-contact, treaty-making, colonization, and resistance. Blankets are laid out on the ground to represent the land, while participants walk in the moccasins of the first peoples.
Ideally, the exercise is followed by a debriefing session in which participants have the opportunity to discuss the experience as a group. This often takes the form of a talking circle.
Due to the nature of the content, we ask clients to provide a counsellor to be present for the duration of the event. If you need assistance finding a counsellor, please see our Self-Care section for resources.
Due to some mature content we suggest this workshop for participants ages 12 and up.
The cost to have us do a Blanket Exercise starts at $700 CAN and depends on how many participants we are facilitating to. Please send us an email for more information.
*The length of the Blanket Exercise varies.
