Vancouver Indigenous ceremony on Tuesday, November 8
A listing of ceremonies around the Lower Mainland
Tuesday, November 8 is Indigenous Veterans Day. Indigenous peoples of Canada sacrificed even more than other military personnel because, among other requirements, they were made to release their Indian Status to enlist, and were not recognized with the same benefits as non-Indigenous soldiers, post-service. We honour their great service and sacrifices for our country.
