The Blanket Exercise is an interactive experience that raises awareness of the nation-to-nation relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in the United States. The experience is designed to increase knowledge about the laws, policies, and programs used during nation building that have impacted Indigenous people’s rights and self-governance by literally walking participants through our shared history with a different perspective. During their experience, participants are provided the opportunity to form a common memory and begin conversation about how we can build intercultural bridges together.
