Mass Blanket Exercise - Shared Wisdom

  • Kwanlin Dun Cultural Centre 1171 Front Street Whitehorse, YT, Y1A 2C6 Canada (map)

We will be hosting a mass blanket exercise outside the Kwanlin Dun Cultural Centre starting at 9:30am on Thursday, May 25th 2017. Please arrive 15 minutes prior to the start time for preparation. 

The blanket exercise is an interactive learning experience designed to broaden deeper understanding on the history of Indigenous Peoples and Canada. Blankets are laid out on the ground to represent the land, and participants will walk in the moccasins of the first peoples through pre-contact, treaty-making, colonization and resistance.

This event is open to indigenous and non-indigenous people. Please bring any blankets you have to spare for this event. 
This is a public event, however due to some mature content we are asking for participants ages 12+
