Vancouver Heritage Foundation’s Places That Matter plaque project is continuing toward its final goal of 125 sites (more announcements to come this fall!). One exciting collaboration that has come out of the public nominations for “Places That Matter” is a partnership with the Musqueam Indian Band, and our pilot Musqueam Bus Tour. If you can’t name more than 3 Musqueam sites in Vancouver, why not join us and discover the rich history of the Musqueam people, who have lived in the Greater Vancouver area for thousands of years. (It’s pretty awesome to take a bus tour in a city you already know, but to see it through new eyes). This Sunday July 27th is our final Musqueam Bus Tour, from 9am-1pm, led by Musqueam youth leaders with stories passed on from Elders.
