UBC’s commitment to meaningful relationships with Aboriginal communities and organizations begins with our acknowledgement of the traditional territories of the Musqueam and Okanagan peoples, which UBC’s Point Grey (Vancouver) and Kelowna (Okanagan) campuses are located. UBC has formal affiliations with both the Musqueam Indian Band and the Okanagan Nation Alliance, and many other forms of relationship with these and other First Nations, and many other Aboriginal communities and organizations. Some relationships, such as these affiliations, operate on the university-wide level, and many others exist between individual programs, researchers, students, and communities and organizations. Many connections exist as well with Indigenous communities and organizations throughout the world. Noted here are a few of these kinds of relationships. Come back often as we add more.

Ernie Campbell, for many years elected chief of the Musqueam Indian Band, passed away recently. Beloved by the students who rode his school bus every day and a respected leader, he will be missed.
