Kairos Blanket Exercise (KBE) for the FIMS Community.

Join us in the Wampum Learning Lodge (adjacent to the Faculty of Education, Althouse College).

In partnership with Danica Pawlick-Potts' LIS 9370 course, hosted by the Office of Indigenous Initiatives (OII), and facilitated by an Indigenous Elder, FIMS students, faculty, and staff are warmly invited to participate in a Kairos Blanket Exercise (KBE), an experiential learning exercise that takes "participants through the history of the colonization of Turtle Island to better understand the ongoing impact of Canadian government policies, institutions, and colonial ideologies, and their intergenerational effects on Indigenous Peoples and communities". The session will be offered in the newly opened Wampum Learning Lodge, adjacent to the Faculty of Education at Althouse College.  Space is limited, so registration in advance is encouraged.

N.B. If you are unable to attend this program offering, another KBE for the FIMS community will be offered in the spring.
