Program Description

Participate in a “Big 6 Historical Thinking” challenge in our c̓əsnaʔəm; the city before the city exhibition. Learn about the impact of colonization on the Musqueam First Nation, how they resisted assimilative policies, and the Museum’s role in the reconciliation process. Test your critical thinking skills through a hands-on workshop where you’ll design a museum exhibit. Gain a deeper understanding of traditional and contemporary culture of the Pacific Northwest First Nations.
