Honouring Indigenous Veterans

Remembering the sacrifices that bring all Canadians together.

November 8th marks Aboriginal Veterans Day, where Canadians honour Indigenous Veterans who put on the uniform and stood for the freedom of all Canadians.

It is believed that 12,000 Indigenous Canadians served in WWI, WWII, and the Korean War.

With our country increasingly divided, we can remember the sacrifices made by Canadians of all backgrounds for the freedom and survival of our nation, and this can inspire us to fight for a Canada where no region is taken advantage of, where all Canadians have economic opportunity, and where we actually strengthen our armed forces and ensure Canada is safe.

Below, you can see some videos honouring both past Indigenous Veterans, and Indigenous Canadians who continue to bravely serve our nation:
