About xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam)
xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) people have lived in our present location for thousands of years. Our traditional territory once occupied much of what is now Vancouver and surrounding areas. The name Musqueam relates back to the flowering plant, məθkʷəy̓, which grows in the Fraser River estuary. There is a story that has been passed on from generation to generation that explains how we became known as the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) – People of the məθkʷəy̓ plant. Although a metropolitan city has developed in the heart of xʷməθkʷəy̓əm territory, our community maintains strong cultural and traditional beliefs. Today, our population flourishes and we are a strong community of over thousand members. To learn more about xʷməθkʷəy̓əm, please visit www.musqueam.bc.ca.
