Happy 125th Birthday Statue of Liberty!

>>> Anniversary of the gift by the descendants of Norval Morrisseau's ancestors (his father Abel Morriseau was part French; his mother was Grace Theresa Potan Nanakonagos, Ojibwa) given to the people of United States of America; as Canada - an ancestral land of the Chippewa or Ojibwa people

125 years ago the Statue of Liberty was given to the people of the United States by the people of France in recognition of the friendship they formed during the American Revolution. The Statue of Liberty’s symbolism represents freedom and democracy along with international friendship.

The Statue was a joint effort between America and France. Americans built the pedestal and the French people were responsible for the Statue’s design and manufacture and for its assembly in the United States.

Happy 125th Birthday Lady Liberty and Happy 235th Birthday America
