Kitchi means “really big” in Anishinaabemowin, the language of the unceded Algonquin territory where our settler capital is located. Together we will walk through more than 500 years of colonization in what we now call Canada and bring focus to the impact on Indigenous peoples. The Blanket Exercise is felt in the body, heart, mind and spirit and with thousands going through the experience together, reverberations will be felt far and wide.
Canada’s formation includes stolen land, broken promises and cultural genocide. The Kitchi Blanket Exercise is a way of saying we do not want the Canada 150 celebrations to gloss over this shared history. Truth is the foundation of reconciliation.
On June 2, thousands of people will converge on Parliament Hill to take part in the Kitchi Blanket Exercise. You are invited! We anticipate buses arriving from various cities, so organize one or hop on board.

In the face of a global surge in xenophobic violence, cities across Canada and around the world are declaring themselves sanctuaries, promising to protect the rights of migrants and guarantee access to city services for all, access without fear. The meeting will feature a panel discussion with community workers and researchers. The panel will be followed by a question and answer session focusing on strategies for making Ottawa a sanctuary city.
Speakers: David Moffette (Criminology Professor, University of Ottawa), Sadia Jama (Community Organizer) and Karen Cocq (Ottawa Sanctuary Network)
