The memorial was designed by local Aboriginal artist, Jason Wing, and is a series of hunter warrior shields, which is connected to the Indigenous community.
11 November 2018 marked a special occasion for two reasons in Canterbury-Bankstown. It is the 100th anniversary of the Armistice, which ended the First World War, and the unveiling of a memorial in honour of local Indigenous war veterans.

The Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander (ATSI) War Memorial, which is located at Federation Reserve, Campsie, was funded by Council and the Department of War Veteran’s Centenary of ANZAC Local Government Grants.

Mayor Khal Asfour said it was fitting the memorial was unveiled on Remembrance Day.
"We must not forget the sacrifices made by our servicemen and women, so we can live free lives today, including the veterans from the local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community," Mayor Asfour said.

AG Public Art worked with Jason Wing and the council on the project to manufacture and install the shields.
