The Blanket Exercise is an opportunity to learn about the Indigenous people's experiences of colonization. The blanket exercise was developed by elders and knowledge keepers to create an experiential learning tool to narrate the historic and contemporary relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in a Canadian context. The exercise includes storytelling, dialogue, as well as references to These Mountains Are Our Sacred Places - The Story of the Stoney People written by Chief John Snow.
The Blanket Exercise will be hosted at Edgemont Community Association, in collaboration with Westminster and with Northwest Community Church, with Rev. Tony Snow and elders from the Stoney Nakoda Nation. To register, call the Edgemont Community Association at 403-239-1211. The event is free of charge, but a limited number of spaces are available.
