Poor Is The Nation That Has No Heroes...Shameful Is The One That, Having Them...Forgets.

The Veteran Memorial serves to honor and exhibit the sacrifices our Wédaséjek (warriors) have made by telling the story of what it meant to be a Potawatomi warrior. It is a living monument to our proud Citizen Potawatomi Nation veterans and active duty members. Currently, the Memorial commemorates more than a thousand veterans and warriors and is continually growing. We invite all veterans, active duty and their families to submit to the memorial.

If you are a veteran and member of the Citizen Potawatomi Nation, and would like your place on the Veteran Memorial at the CPN Cultural Heritage Center, please contact us at 405-878-5830 and ask for Collections and Research or email the Collections and Research department.
