The Blanket Exercise is a workshop that explores the nation-to-nation relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Canada. Its goal is to build understanding about our shared history by walking through pre-contact, treaty-making, colonization, resistance and reconciliation. Participants will also be able to smudge before and after (if they wish) and participate in a discussion around what the exercise was like for them.
Our special guests to assist us in this workshop will be Sasha Sky and Shannon Pride of the White Owl Native Ancestry Association.
All are welcome to come and participate in this moving event. Join us at St. Andrew’s Hespeler, 73 Queen St. E., Cambridge, ON in the Lower Fellowship Hall.
Join in a Pot Luck Lunch 11:15 am if you wish.
Children are invited to “Explorations in Music” which will include playing and making instruments during the Blanket Exercise.
Hosted by St. Andrew’s Hespeler (standrewshespeler.ca) with the White Owl Native Ancestry Association (wonaa.ca)
