Virtual Remembrance Day Ceremony
Zhimaagnishii Giizhgak – November 11th
Our Remembrance Day Ceremony will be held virtually again this year and live streamed for community members to watch on our YouTube channel (youtube.com/NipissingFirstNation). This virtual event will feature pre-recorded content including a recitation of In Flanders Fields in Nishnaabemwin and a Spirit Plate teaching.
The ceremony is by invitation only and will take place at the Garden Village Cenotaph at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, November 11th. While the ceremony itself will not be open to the public, we invite community members to visit the sacred fire and the
cenotaph throughout the day to lay semaa down for veterans and/or to lay a wreath. Wreaths are available to purchase from local Legion branches.
Miigwech to the 22 Wing Canadian Forces Base North Bay for being part of our ceremony again this year. We also extend our appreciation to Veterans Affairs Canada for their contribution toward honorariums for our Grandfather Drum, Elder and Firekeepers.
