We the Musqueam people are united and strong.
We have good hearts and will work together to do the right thing.
We will use our teachings so the Musqueam people will be alright.
We will care about our elders, the ones and everything on this earth.
That way we will be looking after the ones that come after us.
Then the Musqueam will continue to be strong.

 

MISSION
The Musqueam, through transparent and accountable leadership, will assert the right to govern ourselves, for the benefit of all generations of our people, and exercise that right by building capable governing institutions and economies that match our culture through strong leadership.
