In keeping with the Reconciliation Statement of the HKVCA, this page is to identify and recognize the Indigenous members of ‘C’ Force. The HKVCA is actively working to identify such members and as we do so, their names and links to their Individual Reports will be listed here. We invite you to explore this page and learn more about the Indigenous members of ‘C’ Force. Each name is linked to their Individual Report in our 'C' Force library and is listed here in alphabetical order.
Errors or omissions should be reported using the "Contact Us" form linked from the top of this page. We know that we are missing many names, and we urge family members to contact us.
