Witness to Injustice: Unraveling US and Indigenous History

July 18 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$12

Join us at the Skä·noñh Center in Liverpool for an exercise by the Neighbors of Onondaga Nation (NOON) called Witness to Injustice: Unraveling US and Indigenous History adapted from the KAIROS Blanket Exercise. This is a three-hour interactive group exercise that invites participants to experience: colonization, conquest, and attempted genocide of the Indigenous Peoples of Turtle Island (the North American Continent). Witness to Injustice is a participatory exercise designed to raise awareness of European conquest and Indigenous resistance and survival through the use of meaningful quotes and blankets representing the lands of Turtle Island. Participants engage in an experiential history lesson designed in a way that can’t be provided by reading a book. To participate in this rich group exercise you will need to reserve a spot and it will cost $12 per participant.

There is a maximum of 35 people for this group exercise.  It will be held on July 18th, 2019 from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm. To reserve a spot call (315) 453-6767, email: Nicole.abrams@cnyhistory.org, or reserve a space below.

The KAIROS Blanket Exercise has been used across Canada as part of the country’s truth telling processes, and is now being offered in CNY. This participatory event unravels the Indigenous people’s history of the various happenings in the United States.
