Musqueam & UBC

The UBC Vancouver campus is located on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the Musqueam people. The land it is situated on has always been a place of learning for the Musqueam people, who for millennia have passed on their culture, history, and traditions from one generation to the next on this site.

Why We Acknowledge Musqueam Territory

It is common at UBC events to begin with an acknowledgement of Musqueam territory. Why? Watch this short video of Linc Kesler, professor in First Nations and Indigenous Studies and former director of the UBC First Nations House of Learning, to learn more.

Memorandum of Affiliation

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.
