    On November the 11th, Remembrance Day, we honour the sacrifices made by the nearly two million Canadian men and women who served their country in time of war. Included in this number are thousands of Native people who joined the armed forces and fought in foreign lands. Canada's first inhabitants responded quickly and in impressive numbers during the First World War

    Joseph Brant (Thayendanegea) was a Mohawk chief. In 1759, he fought with the British forces in The Seven Years' War. During the American Revolution he visited England (in 1776) to proclaim the Six Nations loyalty to England and was commissioned as a captain in the British army in 1780.

    Lieut. Cameron Brant, great-great-grandson of the legendary warrior Joseph Brant, fell leading his platoon of the 4th Canadian Battalion at Second Ypres, 24 April 1915.
