Time: 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Location: Galloway Station Museum & Travel Centre @ 223 - 55 Street, Edson, Alberta, T7E 1L5

The Blanket Exercise is a powerful 1 to 2 hour participatory workshop that will help participants understand how colonization of the land we now know as Canada has impacted the people who lived here long before settlers arrived.

Through this exercise, participants will explore the nation-to-nation relationship between Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples in Canada, how this relationship has been damaged over the years, and how they can work toward reconciliation.

Please call the Galloway Station Museum at 780-723-5696 to pre-register. In the event we do not have enough participants to run the exercise, you will be notified the day prior.

“This Mountain Life” Martina Halik and her 60-year-old mother Tania attempt a bitterly

the draw of the mountains is so strong that their lives must revolve around it.
Shot in cinematic detail, This Mountain Life is a riveting examination of human passion
set high in the peaks of British Columbia, Canada.
