The Aboriginal Veteran's Monument is the last of the military monuments in Confederation Park, and it has always impressed me. It stands on the western edge of the park, across from the Lord Elgin hotel, and is a mixture of First Nations people and their spiritual ties to the land. Atop the stone base, we can find the wolf, the elk, the bison, and the bear. First Nations warriors form the second layer in the sculpture, and the entire work is topped by a magnificent eagle. It speaks to the tradition of the warrior in our First Nations peoples, as well as a long history of Aboriginal veterans serving in the Canadian Forces, throughout both World Wars, Korea, and many other military operations. I prefer taking shots of it from all four sides.
