    Barbara (Algonquin) and I (settler) have been facilitating Blanket Exercises for 5 years. Very very effective. Later in the sharing circle, most participants say that everyone in Canada should experience the exercise and we certainly agree. It is our contention that all Canadians need to know the true history if we have a hope of journeying together on the long path of reconciliation.
