Indigenous Education as an Act of Reconciliation

Jul 7, 2021

The KAIROS Blanket Exercise is a program of KAIROS CANADA, an ecumenical movement for ecological justice and human rights around the globe. KAIROS Canada is funded under various organizations and individuals, working together for extraordinary change.

Plan now for your WI Branch and community to host a KAIROS Blanket Exercise. It’s a highly effective way to experience the effect of colonization on Indigenous peoples.

The KAIROS Blanket Exercise is for Everyone

Since 1997, tens of thousands of people in Canada and around the world have experienced the KAIROS Blanket Exercise in a wide variety of settings, including government, educational, health, law enforcement, faith, not-for-profit and grassroots.

The standard KBE script has been adapted for different audiences. There are regional and sector-based scripts, and scripts for youth currently in development.

If you have questions, email KAIROS at or visit their website at

You may also contact me, as I have experienced it and would be happy to share about it.
