Indigenous Veterans Day

to the

wind walkers

trail trackers

code talkers,

soldiers slaughtered,

to the

stolen statuses

bloody fields

nations filled

with red losses,

to the

heritages oppressed

tribes distressed

empty headdress’

lest you forget,

the red soldiers

rights taken

spirits forsaken

unmarked graves,

we remember

every 8th of november

the sacrifices made

for all future generations

by the warrior braves

our sacred Indigenous veterans.



November 8th is Indigenous Veterans Day, many Indigenous peoples faced disenfranchisement, citizenry oppression and shame as they skillfully fought for a country that continues to take advantage of the generosity and servitude of Indigenous peoples.


I honour these brave warriors today.


With Indigenous love,


Kim
