Aboriginal Veterans Day is officially recognized in only one Canadian province.

Manitoba has commemorated the day since 1994.

On Tuesday, one of the few national veterans events was held in a small Manitoba community called Arborg, which is located near the Peguis First Nation.

APTN National News reporter Matt Thordarson travelled to the local Legion there for the ceremony.
