Join us for a 1/2 day of learning about the history of relationships between Indigenous and non-Indigenous people in Canada. You will have the chance to participate in the KAIROS Blanket Exercise; tour the Hamilton Regional Indian Centre and learn about the work they do; hear teachings about the Indian Act; and learn about First Nations' resiliency.
Join us in a reflective art-making practice. We will learn together about forming community across social and ethnic boundaries, while practicing the art of kintsugi.
