Musqueam (pronounced MUSS-quee-um)'s ancestors have lived in the Fraser River estuary for thousands of years. Today, portions of Musqueam's traditional territory are called Vancouver, North Vancouver, South Vancouver, Burrard Inlet, New Westminster, Burnaby, and Richmond.
Today, they are a strong, growing community of over 1,300 members. Many of their members live on a small portion of our traditional territory, known as the Musqueam Indian Reserve, located south of Marine Drive near the mouth of the Fraser River.
