Every year on November 11, Mtis from across the homeland participate in Remembrance Day Ceremonies. Being part of these ceremonies is very important to Mtis because we have contributed to the defense of Canada as far back as the War of 1812 as well as both World Wars, the Korean Conflict, peacekeeping missions and most recently, Afghanistan. Over the years, many Mtis have served and many have made the ultimate sacrifice. By making the Mtis presence felt at Remembrance Day services, we show our respect for all Veterans and we remind all Canadians of Mtis service and sacrifices.

Since 2004, the Mtis Nation of Ontario (MNO) has laid a wreath at the National War Memorial in Ottawa during National Remembrance Day ceremonies. This year, Chief Warrant Officer (CWO) Jaime Lefebvre, CD, LLB, was asked to lay the wreath. Jaime requested the presence of her father, Richard Lefebvre, CD, who also served in the military and retired as a Master Warrant Officer, and her son Ethan.

While Ethan is in the Royal Canadian Air Cadets, he plans to follow in the footsteps of his mother and grandfather, both of whom are MNO citizens, and join the army.

I feel very proud of them, and really thankful they did that for our family and our country, he said.

As the three of them stood together after laying the wreath, they all saluted the National War Memorial in unison, their Mtis sashes bright against the dark green or grey of their uniforms. These days, Mtis can proudly wear their sashes to identify their heritage.

I think Im very honoured and proud that the Canadian Armed Forces sat a committee so we could actually wear our Mtis sash with our uniform, Jaime shared in an interview.

They put a lot of thought and consulted Mtis elders on the process and made a decision about how the sash would be worn. They didnt want to have two different standards. Instead of having the female way and the male way, we have the soldiers way: around the waist and with the knot on the left side. It wont be confused with the red sash, which is what our combat arms wear to represent the Queens scarf and the blood that was shed in the battlefield by a lot of the infantry.

After the ceremony at the National War Memorial, father, daughter and grandson walked over to the National Aboriginal Veterans Memorial on Elgin Street. Jaime placed a poppy on the memorial and the three of them saluted.

Its an honour to be here, remembering the ones who gave their lives, Richard said.

Together, Richard, Jaime and Ethan, three generations of Mtis, continued a Remembrance Day tradition that will keep this vital and honoured ceremony alive.
