“We Are All Treaty People” Tour of Treaty Exhibit
Circles for Reconciliation has developed a partnership with the Manitoba Museum that allows our participants to have a private guided tour of the Museum’s excellent exhibit on treaties.
A one hour blanket ceremony which tells the historical and contemporary relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Canada by acting out a play is a powerful teaching tool available to our participants.
Experience a Sweat Lodge
Circles for Reconciliation offers opportunities for participants to take part in a sweat lodge and/or other Indigenous ceremonies.
