is located near the National War Monument in Confederation Park (on Elgin Street across the street from the Lord Elgin Hotel). The 9m bronze and marble memorial, by Saskatchewan aboriginal artist Lloyd Pinay, was unveiled in 2001. This richly symbolic monument pays tribute to the extensive and voluntary contribution of Aboriginal men and women to Canada's armed forces over the years.|
The monument depicts four representative Aboriginal people - a woman, a First Nations person, a Métis person and an Inuit person. Animals were incorporated into the design to show the traits valued in Aboriginal societies which may show up as spirit guides: a bear for strength, a wolf for family values, a cougar for stealth and an elk for sharp senses. Above all else on the monument flies an eagle, known as the thunderbird, which is symbolic of the Creator.
