Lest We Forget

The Circle Project Staff and Council would like to take a moment to honour the contributions of the Indigenous men and women who have served and who continue to serve Canada during times of war, conflict and peace. 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, MĂ©tis and other Indigenous people also participated. One Veterans group estimates that 12,000 Indigenous men and women served in the three wars.

 

For those who gave the ultimate sacrifice and for those who continue to serve with bravery, we would like to honour them and say thank you for their service.
