Kairos Blanket Exercise
The Kairos Blanket Exercise is an interactive workshop which takes
participants through more than 500 years of shared history as Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Canada. Participants step
onto the blankets representing the land, and into the role of First Nations, Inuit and later Métis peoples.
Tina Savea is Saulteaux/Cree from Peepeekisis Cree Nation on Treaty 4 territory in Saskatchewan. She resides on traditional WSÁNEĆ territory with her husband Niu and their three children.

true history of her people in Canada. Tina loves facilitating the Kairos Blanket Exercise and is committed to sharing the freedom she has found through forgiveness and personal responsibility. She Shares openly about the pain of losing her father as a result of the
residential school system and how finding her voice was the beginning of her healing journey. Tina is passionate about breaking down judgments that destroy relationship and building strong
communities where every person is valued and equipped with the leadership skills they need to move forward in life
Co-host Kim Paolo: I was born and raised on Lekwungen territory (Victoria,BC) and my ancestry is Irish, Scottish and English. I have been working as an ECE, in various settings, for almost twenty five years. In more recent years, I have been working at understanding what it means to be a settler on this land. It is my desire to decolonize my practice and gather with other educators and caregivers who are on the same journey.
