Description

Following in the footsteps of his brothers and many members of his Métis community, Frank Tomkins enrolled in the Canadian Army in 1945. His story touches on his family’s connection to the North-West Resistance, Cree Code Talkers, and the benefits denied to Indigenous veterans after the Second World War.
