Iroquois Condolence Ceremony

On Memorial Day, an Iroquois Condolence Ceremony was held at Arlington National Cemetery. This ceremony, deeply rooted in solemn tradition, has the dual role of consoling the survivors of fallen heroes while celebrating the ability of the living to gather for the occasion. The ceremony included the Thanksgiving Address of the People of the Iroquois Confederacy, words of condolence from attending dignitaries, and the burning of sacred tobacco.
