Remembrance Day is one of the most important days of the year to the Chippewas of Nawash Unceded First Nation, the time when we proudly and somberly celebrate the bravery, commitment and sacrifice of our many cherished veterans.
Neyaashiinigmiing traditionally observes Remembrance Day with a very well-attended public ceremony. Unfortunately, as it has impacted so many other parts of our lives, the COVID-19 pandemic requires significant restrictions to this year’s ceremony.
In order to keep the participants as safe as possible, particularly the elder veterans, and to comply with provincial restrictions on the size of outdoor gatherings, the Remembrance Day ceremony will not be open to the public. Out of respect and concern for the safety of the colour party and honoured guests, please do not attempt to attend the ceremony in person.
To allow our members to participate in our Remembrance Day observance, we will be live streaming the ceremony to the community from our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/CONUFN/.
While we would all prefer to gather in person, as a family, we are pleased to bring the entire membership together – virtually – to honour our veterans. Please mark your calendars to attend the Remembrance Day live stream.
