National Indigenous Veterans Day

On this National Indigenous Veterans Day, we honour the sacrifice that so many of our Métis soldiers paid fighting for Canada. Our Veterans paid the ultimate sacrifice and showed bravery and courage in the face of evil and tyranny. Coming home, many were shunned and ignored, not receiving the same benefits as other Veterans. We are only now beginning to hear the story of so many Métis who served. It is through these stories that their legacy will live on. Thank you to Veteran’s Chair, Dave Armitt, and Elder and Métis Veteran Women’s Representative, Barb Hulme, for laying a wreath at the Victory Square Park Cenotaph on behalf of Métis Nation British Columbia.
