Blanket exercise with Elder Billy Lewis

A blanket exercise facilitated by Shila LeBlanc, Doug Rigby, Mary Rigby, and Elder Billy Lewis.

The blanket exercise is a unique, interactive, and participatory history lesson developed in collaboration with Indigenous Elders, knowledge keepers, and educators. Developed in response to the Report of the Royal Commission on Aboriginal Peoples in 1996 –which recommended education about Canadian-Indigenous history as one of the key steps to reconciliation — the blanket exercise covers more than 500 years in a 90-minute experiential workshop that aims to foster understanding about our shared history as Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples. Since its creation, the exercise has been updated several times to include new information such as the 2015 Truth and Reconciliation final report.
