Explore the relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples and how we can take action together. Blankets arranged on the floor represent land and participants are invited to step into the roles of First Nations, Inuit and later Métis peoples. The workshop helps people to understand how the colonization of this land impacts those who were here long before settlers arrived.
