The Kitchi Blanket Exercise brings a different focus to Canada 150 through KAIROS’ visual and participatory history lesson of Canada from the perspective of Indigenous peoples. Kitchi means “really big” in Anishinaabemowin. Presented by KAIROS Canada and the Assembly of Seven Generations.

June 2, 2017 marks the second anniversary of the release of the TRC Calls to Action. These 94 Calls to Action are a way forward for us as a country and they need to remain front and centre in our conversations about reconciliation.
