Monument

Help us make this project a reality. This monument will honor all Indigenous Veterans within the Rhode Island Veterans Memorial Cemetery. We plan to utilize local Native American masons to create the arch and plinth (base) that surrounds the engraved stone marker. The goal is to include all represented tribal nations reflecting the veterans as well as include veterans' names on the pavers.

Be part of history and honor Indigenous Veterans of Turtle Island!
