Musqueam and UBC

UBC’s Point Grey Campus is located on the traditional, ancestral, unceded territory of the Musqueam people. The land it is situated on has always been a place of learning for the Musqueam people, who prior had received teachings in their culture, history, and traditions from one generation to the next.

The Musqueam Indian Band and the University of British Columbia have a long history of partnership. This was strengthened in December 2006 with the signing of a historic memorandum of affiliation. As a result, a number of initiatives between the University and the Musqueam Indian Band have resulted.
