Reflections on the Blanket Exercise: a Gift of Communities Coming Together for Reconciliation

Published on: Author: Arwen

On June 9th, 2018, Vancouver Monthly Meeting gathered with the Vancouver Unitarian community on unceded Musqueam and Coast Salish territory in a beautiful intergenerational Blanket Exercise. The Blanket Exercise is a teaching tool developed by KAIROS, a network of representatives from ten churches focused on ecological justice and human rights. The exercise was created in partnership with Indigenous advisors, in response to the 1996 Report of the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples, which recommended education on Canadian-Indigenous history as a key step towards Reconciliation.
