REMEMBRANCE DAY - NOVEMBER 11, 2021
Remembrance Day has been observed since the end of the First World War to remember armed forces members who have died in the line of duty. In most countries, Remembrance Day is observed on 11 November to recall the end of First World War hostilities. Hostilities formally ended "at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month" of 1918, in accordance with the armistice signed by representatives of Germany and the Entente between 5:12 and 5:20 that morning. The First World War officially ended with the signing of the Treaty of Versailles on 28 June 1919.
November 8, 2021, marks National Aboriginal Veterans Day in Canada. On this day, we mark the important contributions and remember the many sacrifices made by First Nations, Inuit, and Métis in uniform. They were far from home. Far from their communities and families. Yet when Canada called, they responded. They served.
Between World War I and World War II, Indigenous volunteers were often forced to overcome many challenges to serve in uniform, from learning a new language and adapting to cultural differences, to having to travel great distances from their remote communities just to enlist. Although exact statistics are difficult to determine, historians believe that between 7000 - 8000 Status Indians enlisted. That amount does not include the thousands of Inuit, Métis, and Non-Status Indians who volunteered and fought.
