The Office of the Interim Chief Diversity Officer is hosting the Witness to Injustice: KAIROS Blanket Exercise to foster greater understanding and respect between indigenous and non-indigenous peoples. This interactive teaching workshop is co-hosted and facilitated by members of the Neighbors of the Onondaga Nation (NOON).

Through the use of meaningful quotes and blankets that represent part of Turtle Island (the Western Hemisphere), the exercise helps participants deepen their understanding about European colonization and the denial of indigenous peoples’ nationhood throughout U.S. history up to present time.

Light refreshments will be served.
