Module 3 – Post 4 – How Media Supports Indigenous Memories (Part 2) by Kevin Andrews

This video entitled: The Musqueam Marpole Midden Vigil Interview, explains what the Musqueam community has done:

The steps that have been taken, from peaceful demonstrations, suggestions of swapping land to relocate the condo project, their efforts to talk to the provincial and federal government, until their blockade on the bridge – which is sad when the government decided to take note of the issue and begin talks.

The speaker makes a good case of why saving this site is important to the Musqueam people and also of comparing the fact that digging up other Canadian graveyards is not allowed or done in Canada, why should it be different for them.
