Stellat'en First Nation - Indigenous Veterans Day Ceremony
November 10, 2023
On November 8, Indigenous Veterans Day, Damien Ketlo, Indigenous Relations Liaison, and Claudette Gouger, Indigenous and Community Relations Coordinator, attended a ceremony at the Stellat'en First Nation.
This is the first year that Stellat'en First Nation is celebrating National Indigenous Veterans Day, with an event held in the newly-constructed gazebo around the Veteran's Memorial. The ceremony acknowledged the Indigenous veterans from Stellat'en who have served in the armed forces. It was followed by a community brunch which included a display on Stellat'en veterans created by Peter Luggi.
We are pleased to have support the development of the memorial park in 2022 and to support the community event this year.
