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.

Thank you for reading this story...

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.

If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.

We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
