The ceremony at Queenston Heights was to remember Indigenous veterans, past and present.
Amidst the orange and yellow leaves of fall, the stark red and white uniforms of the 2nd Lincoln Artillery complemented the day as the artillery broke a moment of silence with cannon fire to honour Indigenous veterans at the Landscape of Nations in Queenston Heights Saturday.
It was the seventh anniversary of the unveiling of this landmark.
The smell of burning sage, and smoke from a Ceremonial Fire tended by Brian Kon, set the scene of remembrance and gratitude during the ceremony.
Travis Hill, curator of Indigenous culture and heritage with the city of Hamilton, emceed the event. “We have a day representing Indigenous warriors past and present,” he said.
