The Military Museums

Indigenous Veterans Day 

Date: Nov 8, 2021: 12:30pm

On November 8th, 2021, join The Military Museums Foundation and the Glenbow Museums for an afternoon commemorating Canada's Indigenous Veterans.During this week of Remembrance, the Military Museums Foundation is highlighting the important contributions and experiences that Indigenous people have had within the Canadian Armed Forces. The Museums will host elders and Indigenous veterans from the surrounding nations who will speak of their personal experiences and connections with the Canadian Armed Forces.

This year, the Military Museums Foundation is partnering with the Glenbow Museum. The Glenbow will be putting on a pop-up display here at the Military Museums and they will have their team of interpreters working alongside the Foundation to build connections and facilitate an exchange of knowledge.

Engage with both institutions to discuss the nuances involved in Indigenous artefact stewardship and telling stories from and about Indigenous cultures. Guests will discover how decolonization and reconciliation are addressed in the sphere of public history, and what steps still need to be taken.

Due to current restrictions, capacity is limited and we ask that you register on eventbrite.
