Cortes Island Women’s Resource Centre
Mansons Landing, British Columbia

The Blanket Exercise – a participatory experience of learning about Indigenous people’s history and the process of colonization – will be used to educate, show commitment, and bridge the gap between the Klahoose First Nation (and all Nations) and the non-native Cortes community. The exercise will promote understanding of the community’s history, and help to move forward with decolonization. It will also help to support Indigenous women and girls in a remote area, and help make the community safer for women in the community.
