This graphic recording was created as part of a public engagement series for the Heather Lands development project; a parcel of land in Vancouver's west side near the Cambie Street corridor. The First Nations' owned MST Development Corporation - a partnership of the Musqueam Indian Band, Squamish Nation and Tsleil-Waututh Nation - and the Canada Lands Company, created a land-use plan that aims to create an affordable, culturally rich and vibrant neighbourhood.
This recording was collaborative and I learned a lot about the Squamish Nation. For instance I didn't know that "bannock" was not eaten prior to settlers arriving.
