World Wars Aboriginal Veterans

This site collects the personal stories, photographs and achievements of Canada’s aboriginal World War veterans for posterity.

The World Wars Aboriginal Veterans Portal is a community-driven initiative to collect and digitize surviving information about the estimated 12,000 aboriginal (First Nations, Inuit, Metis) people who served in Canada's armed forces during the First and Second World Wars.

Are you or do you know an aboriginal veteran of the World Wars? Join the initiative and help collect and share these stories by sharing photographs, records, or adding known facts.
