5851 West Boulevard
Vancouver, BC

The Musqueam people have been present in what is now Greater Vancouver for several thousands of years. Archaeological journals have recorded evidence of Musqueam’s existence in this area, particularly the Marpole midden – located at the mouth of the North Arm of the Fraser River, in excess of 4,000 years and at the Musqueam reserve in excess of 3,500 years. Larry Grant was raised on traditional Musqueam territory and is currently an Elder in Residence at the First Nations House of Learning at UBC. He will be sharing stories on the history of the Musqueam people.
