Photographer's Note

This monuments is raised in sackred and everlasting honour of the contributions of all Aboriginal Canadians in war and peacekeeping operation
" The strength of Aboriginal peoples' beliefs are drawn from spirit guides which are represented by the wolf, the bear, the elk, and the cougar in the bronze statue."
"Each of the creatures have characteristics held in high esteem. For the Wolf, high intelligence, courage and family values were attributes that a man would strive to emulate, in a Bear, tremendous strength and power would be a goal. The Elk, also known as the Red Deer, or Wapati, is fleet of foot and has very sharp senses, yet is powerful in battle. The Cougar was admired for its stealth, ferocity and speed."
