The Mayne Island Library and Mayne Island School, with guidance from John Aitken, will be holding an event to acknowledge National Indigenous People’s Day (formerly National Aboriginal Day) on Thursday, June 21st in the gymnasium at the school.

The event will start at 11:30 am and will include a traditional lunch served by the school students; the announcement of the 2018 Mayne Island Reads title; a chance to view the students’ work on First Nations history and people.  Starting at 12:45, the students and community members will be lead through the Blanket Exercise by a facilitator from the British Columbia Teachers’ Federation.

What is the Blanket exercise? A teaching tool to share the historic and contemporary relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Canada.
