Indigenous Veterans Day

Indigenous Veterans Day

National Indigenous Peoples Day is celebrated each year on June 21 and Aboriginal Veterans Day is marked on November 8. Indigenous people in Canada have reason to be proud of their wartime contributions. More than 7,000 First Nations members served in the First and Second World Wars and the Korean War, and an unknown number of Inuit, Métis and other Indigenous people also participated. One Veterans group estimates that 12,000 Indigenous men and women served in the three wars.
