Nov. 8, 2021 National Aboriginal Veterans Day

November 8,
We offer sincere thanks to  The Uxbridge Cosmos  newspaper  and The Standard Newspaper, published in Port Perry, for publishing this acknowledgement. 2021 is the third time this wreath has been laid at Uxbridge Cenotaph. Gathered on the grass in Centennial  Park were residents of Uxbridge and Stouffville. After the  Land Acknowledgement was offered a red ribbon was passes Hand to Hand to complete a circle starting and ending in the hands of Original People Of This Land now know as Canada. The ribbon was cut then cut so that each person held their pieces as they walked to the cenotaph lead by Member of Cree First Nation Dianne Brown-Green and son’s James and Will carrying the wreath marking National Aboriginal Veterans Day. The wreath ribbon carries the Ojibway word  “Mishkooziidaa” – To Stand With Strength” as local area resident Mim Harder walks along side. The Canada Flag is lowered by Dianne’s son Will. National Aboriginal Veterans Day is acknowledged on November 8th in Canada, Recognizing The Service Of All Aboriginal Veteran and Serving Members of Canada’s Armed Forces.
