Trung Sisters Commemoration Ceremony 2015Poster_the_trung_sisters_event_new_pix

The Trung Sisters were Vietnamese military leaders who rebelled against Chinese rule for three years, and are regarded as national heroines of Vietnam. Their names were Trưng Trắc and Trưng Nhị. The Trung Sisters are highly revered in Vietnam, as they led the first resistance movement against the occupation of the Chinese after 247 years of domination.

Even though the Trung Sisters’ revolt against the Chinese was almost 2,000 years ago, its legacy in Vietnam remains. The two sisters are considered to be a national symbol in Vietnam. They represent Vietnam’s independence. They are often depicted as two women riding two giant war elephants. They are often seen leading their followers into battle against the Chinese. The Trung Sisters were more than two sisters that gave their life up for their country, they are powerful symbols of Vietnamese resistance and freedom.

Annually, the VWAT Family Services organizes this event not only to express our gratitude for the heroines but also to preserve Vietnamese culture in Canada.

This year Trung Sisters Commemoration Ceremony 2015 will be hold on
Saturday March 21, 2015 from 9:00am-4:00pm
Oakdale Community Center
