Aboriginal Soldiers

 

Almost 4,000 indigenous people joined the Canadian Expeditionary Force. Albert MOUNTAIN HORSE, a Blood native, described his experience on the battlefield:

“‘I was in the thick of the fighting at Ypres … and we had to get out of it. The Germans were using the poisonous gas on our men – oh it was awful – it is worse than anything I know of. I don’t mind rifle fire and the shells bursting around us, but this gas is the limit.’”
