Film Screening: c̓əsnaʔəm, the city before the city

Museum of Vancouver09 Aug '18 @ 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
  • Film Screening: c̓əsnaʔəm, the city before the city

Join in for a special screening of locally produced film, c̓əsnaʔəm, the city before the city (2017, 75 min, Canada), in addition to a discussion with the film's director Elle-Máijá Tailfeathers and Musqueam Members. c̓əsnaʔəm, the city before the city commemorates five years since the resolution of a dramatic and compelling moment in the history of of metro Vancouver.

In late 2011, the Musqueam First Nation learned of a 108-unit condo development that was being planned at one of their ancestral village sites without prior consultation with the nation. The ancient site, dating back over 4,000 years, has always been known to Musqueam as c̓əsnaʔəm, but is commonly referred to as the Eburne Midden, the Marpole Midden, the Great Fraser Midden, and DhRs-1. Not long after discovering the news of the planned condo development, Musqueam learned ancestral remains were unearthed during an archeological “investigation” prior to development. This led Musqueam community members, to physically halt construction by holding vigil at the site around the clock for over 200 days – while Musqueam, the City of Vancouver, the BC provincial government and the condo developers struggled to find resolution.

Through the voices of the Musqueam First Nation, c̓əsnaʔəm, the city before the city shares deeply-rooted community knowledge of Musqueam’s living culture and ongoing relationship with their ancestral and unceded territory now known as metro Vancouver.
