Two Rivers Friends,
We thought it was important to remind people early in the week about the KAIROS Blanket Exercise this coming Sunday. Two Rivers Church is proudly sponsoring the event with the generous support of St. Andrew’s. This event is an ideal opportunity for the Practice of Community with our church membership, with the larger Guelph population, and with Canada’s Indigenous people who have endured a dark history.
Please feel free to extend an invitation to friends and family members. You can copy-and-paste the text below into an email, or send the attached flyer.
Experience the History of Indigenous Peoples in Canada
The Blanket Exercise is based on participatory, popular, education methodology and the goal is to build understanding about our shared history as Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Canada by walking through pre-contact, treaty-making, colonization and resistance. Everyone is actively involved as they step onto blankets that represent the land, and into the role of First Nations, Inuit and later Métis peoples. By engaging on an emotional and intellectual level, the Blanket Exercise effectively educates and increases empathy.
