Veterans Memorial Tipi
FNUniv is privileged to be the home of a very special memorial space. The large glass tipi that surrounds the First Nations University of Canada Regina Campus Atrium is not just an architectural marvel boasting an enormous set of windows and truly stunning tile work – it is also a tribute to First Nations Veterans who served in the Canadian and U.S. militaries since World War I. The tipi was officially opened on June 6, 2008 to commemorate D-Day (June 6, 1944). The soldiers and warriors of yesterday and today sacrificed so that the next generation could grow and prosper, making FNUniv a fitting place for this grand memorial.
First Nations University of Canada pays respect to our First Nations Veterans by holding an annual Remembrance Day Service in the Veterans Memorial Tipi. The program includes a Pipe Ceremony, Grand Entry and Service, a moment of silence, the laying of wreaths and lunch. This event is open to everyone – watch our News and Events page for details.
