Musqueam Indian Band

Although a metropolitan city has developed in the heart of Musqueam territory, the Musqueam community is strong and flourishing near the mouth of the Fraser River, with over a thousand members maintaining strong traditional and cultural beliefs. The Musqueam people traditionally used the resources the land provided for fishing, hunting, trapping and gathering to maintain their livelihood. Today, the Musqueam still use these resources for economic and traditional purposes. Community historians and educators pass on Musqueam history to the community, which has always been the way of the Musqueam people.
