Musqueam Through Time

Watch The Video

The Musqueam people have been here since the beginning.

From the beginning, through contact and to present Musqueam has practiced and maintains strong and proud traditions. Archaeological evidence at areas such as c̓əsnaʔəm (Marpole) dates back in excess of 4,000 years and at St. Mungo's and Glenrose Cannery to 8,000 to 9,000 years. Enduring traditions have allowed Musqueam to continually sets precedents. From the youngest Elected Chief and Council in 1951 and ongoing legal precedents, such as the Guerin case (1984) and Sparrow Case (1990), "Musqueam Through Time" tells the story of a timeless culture that continues to guide not just the Musqueam people, but Canada as a whole.
