5,000 students will receive a copy of the book ‘Honouring Our Peacekeepers: An Overview of Aboriginal Veterans and Peacekeepers’ at the Education Day of the 16th Annual Canadian Aboriginal Festival in Hamilton, November 27th, 2009. The theme for this year’s "signature event" for Canadian Aboriginal peoples is "Saluting Our Warriors," past and present.

Today, veterans are revered at every community powwow and Remembrance Day ceremony. The eagle staff and flags are carried in with honour by veterans and peacekeepers from the local community. We recognize that these soldiers overcame great challenges and made inspiring sacrifices to help this nation.

"Bruce Power is honoured to help Ningwakwe Learning Press make students aware of the great sacrifices First Nations veterans have made. We hope the students attending the Canadian Aboriginal Festival feel great pride in these contributions," said Murray Elston, Bruce Power’s Vice President of Corporate Affairs..

Ningwakwe Learning Press is an Owen Sound publishing company that specializes in First Nation, Inuit and Metis literacy and education resources. They were recently honoured with the Cultural Heritage Award from the City of Owen Sound’s inaugural Cultural Awards.
