Reconciliation through Education and Understanding
The KAIROS Blanket Exercise is a unique, participatory history lesson – developed in collaboration with Indigenous Elders, knowledge keepers and educators – that fosters truth, understanding, respect and reconciliation among Indigenous and non-indigenous peoples.
It will take place on the Fort Anne Grounds on the other side of the sally port (rain location the Academy Gym), and will be followed by a light meal.
THE EVENT IS FREE OF CHARGE. However, spaces are limited, so please Pre-register by emailing the Box Office <[email protected]> or by calling King’s Theatre at 902-532-7704.
Thank you to Adele and Bill MacDonald, who are supporting these events in memory of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls.
That evening, you are invited to:
7:30-9:00 pm WE STORY THE LAND Film & Discussion at King’s Theatre
This half hour film by Martha Stiegman and Sherry Pictou follows seven paddlers from L’sitkuk First Nation in Bear River as they travel through the land, to reconnect with a part of their history and a part of themselves. The Bear River reserve boundary cuts the people of L’sitkuk off from their ancestors’ hunting and fishing grounds. But there are old canoe routes that leave from the reserve, and cross the territory; and people here are working to reclaim them.
The film will be followed by a panel discussion with members of the L’sitkuk First Nation who are featured in the film.
THE EVENT IS FREE OF CHARGE.
Thank you to Adele and Bill MacDonald, who have sponsored these events in memory of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls.
