Yesterday was National Aboriginal Veterans Day. Please take time this week to learn and remember.
Manitoba was the first to recognize Aboriginal Veterans Day in 1994, when a private member's resolution passed unanimously by the legislative assembly. The National Aboriginal Veterans War Memorial was unveiled in Ottawa on June 21, 2001. Since then many communities across Canada celebrate the dedication of aboriginal veterans on November 8.
