KAIROS Blanket Exercise held at Kwomais Lodge

Fifty people, including SOURCES staff, board members, local politicians and community members, participated in a KAIROS Blanket Exercise (KBE) at Kwomais Lodge on November 30, 2018. We acknowledge that the KBE took place on the ancestral and unceded territory of the Semiahmoo First Nation and Coast Salish peoples.

The KBE was facilitated by KAIROS BC, represented by two Elders of the Katzie First Nation. Sources Community Resources Society organized the event with the help of the Federation of Community Social Services of BC.

SOURCES CEO David Young welcomes participants and thanks the Katzie First Nation Elders for facilitating the KAIROS Blanket Exercise.

The KBE is a unique, participatory workshop that covers over 500 years of Canada’s history as it pertains to Indigenous peoples. It was developed in collaboration with Indigenous Elders, knowledge keepers and educators. The goal of the KBE is to foster truth, understanding, respect and reconciliation among Indigenous and non-indigenous peoples. Learn more about the KBE here.
