The Defence Team is celebrating this year’s Aboriginal Awareness Week from May 23 to 26, under the theme “Honouring the Traditional Ways.”

Ceremonies, events, and activities will take place throughout the organization, and all civilian employees and military members are encouraged to take part in activities held in their area.

These are great opportunities to learn more about the rich history of Indigenous peoples in Canada, and the diversity of their cultures, traditions, and values.

Lieutenant-General P.F. Wynnyk, Commander Canadian Army and the Defence Team Champion for Indigenous Peoples, will be hosting the national event on May 25 at National Defence Headquarters.
