In Person Event on Sunday, November 5, 12:30pm
Did you know that Native Americans have served in the United States military with the highest record of service per capita when compared to any other ethnic group? Each year IAIS honors several local Native Americans who have served in the Armed Forces. This year, we will be joined by the Yootay Singers drum group based out of Mashantucket, CT, who will provide honor songs to help recognize their contributions. Join us for an outdoor ceremony to acknowledge the sacrifices of this year’s honorees , as well as all veterans, Native and Non-Native, who have served our country. Following the ceremony, attendees are invited to enjoy some warm beverages and light refreshments.
Please note: The ceremony, or portions of it, may move inside if there is rain or freezing temperatures, but participants should come prepared for an outdoor event.
This event is free and open to the public, but pre-registration is appreciated and donations are always appreciated. Please register online through our website. Questions? Please call (860) 868-0518 or email [email protected].
