Today We Honour Indigenous Veterans

November 8, 2022

NOVEMBER 8 IS INDIGENOUS VETERANS DAY. Today we honour the strength and service of Indigenous Veterans, past and present, and thank them for their sacrifices.

Read here about the Indigenous Veterans Initiative to provide grave markers to Indigenous Veterans lying in unmarked graves and to add traditional names of Indigenous Veterans to existing military grave markers.
