Program Description

Play a game in our c̓əsnaʔəm: the city before the city exhibition. Learn about the impact of colonization on the Musqueam community, how they resisted assimilative policies, and the Museum’s role in the reconciliation process. Test your critical-thinking skills in a hands-on workshop where you will learn about our shared responsibility in the reconciliation process. Through Object-Based Learning, gain a deeper understanding of traditional and contemporary First Nations culture.
