National Aboriginal Day
Date: Thurs, 21 June, 2018
Lecturer: Warrant Officer Quinn
National Aboriginal Day is a day we recognize and celebrate the cultures and contributions of the First Nations, Inuit, and Metis Indigenous people in Canada. The Military Museums is proud to present our speaker, Warrant Officer (WO) Quinn on June 21st at 7 pm, to celebrate the unique heritage and outstanding achievements of our nation’s aboriginal people.
With 28 years of service in the Canadian Armed Forces (CAF), WO Quinn has conducted tours in former Yugoslavia and Afghanistan, instructed in the Bold Eagle program, and served as CAF Eagle Staff Carrier at the 100th Anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge.
WO Quinn will present on his career in the Canadian Armed Forces and convey who he is as a soldier and person, through his achievements and accomplishments. With this, he coincides the importance of National Aboriginal Day and aboriginal contributions to Canada’s military.
The foundation of the Aboriginal way of life are built around seven sacred teachings. Love, Respect, Courage, Honesty, Wisdom, Truth and Humility. Warrant Officer Quinn lives by these teachings and believes through humility we accept our place in life as equals.
We are so grateful that he has agreed to share his story with us and respect that he must go against his teachings in order to do so. Join us June 21st at 7:00pm to learn more about Aboriginal people and their contribution to the Canadian Military.
