National Aboriginal Day
- Today is National Aboriginal Day in Canada. A day set aside
to honour the diverse traditions and outstanding contributions
of Canada's first residents.
As students of the War of 1812 we should remember today, those
Native Ally leaders and warriors who fought during this conflict.
Most of us know of Tecumseh and John Norton (Teyoninhokarawen)
but can we name others who stood side by side with our Regiments
and honoured themselves from 1812 to 1815.
