Land Acknowledgement


This project and work takes place on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səlilwətaɬ  (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations. We acknowledge that this land was never surrendered, relinquished, or handed over by these nations to Canada or British Columbia through a treaty or other means; it is sovereign and unsurrendered. We also recognize that as uninvited guests on these unceded lands, allyship means working together to dismantle colonial and oppression systems.

此項目和研究工作於xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (瑪斯琴族),Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (史戈米殊族)、和 səlilwətaɬ (斯里華圖族) 所未割讓的家園上進行 。我們承認這片土地從未被這些民族通過條約或其他方式交出、放棄或移交給加拿大或卑詩省; 它由三個民族共同擁有主權和從未被割讓。我們也認識到,作為這些未割讓土地上的不速之客,與以上民族結盟意味著共同努力拆除殖民和壓迫制度。

“That is the story of my background, my father is Cantonese, and my mother is Musqueam Indigenous woman. And I am a part of this Chinatown.”

“這就是我的故事,我父親是廣東人,我母親是瑪斯昆原住民 。我是這個唐人街的一部分”

"LG Guardian" (LG 守護者) by Louie Gong

“Designed by artist, activist and educator Louis Gong (Nooksack and Chinese),  this bamboo print depicts a Chinese Guardian lion in Coast Salish and Northwest Coast art styles. The common purpose of Chinese Guardian lions (fu dogs)  and Coast Salish house posts, which both identify and protect important spaces, inspired Gong to create this piece.This print is a legacy from “An Evening with Larry Grant”, held on Oct. 25, 2013 as part of the annual R. Grant Ingram the Distinguished Lecture Series that St. John's College hosts in honour of its founding Principal. As a knowledge keeper from the Musqueam nation, Elder Larry Grant does integral work to preserve, revitalize and share his Musqueam and Chinese Canadian heritage. Larry is a descendant of qiyəplenəxʷ (Capilano), the great Musqueam warrior who defended his nation and welcomed the first English and Spanish explorers to Vancouver. House Posts that represent qiyəplenəxʷ are located by Allard Hall (UBC faculty of Law) and on the Musqueam reserve."

由藝術家、行動者、以及教育家 Louis Gong (諾克塞克人和華人)設計,這副竹板畫描繪了一隻海岸塞利希族和西北海岸族風格的中國守護獅子。中國守護獅子(也稱富小狗)與海岸薩利希語族的屋柱的共同目的都是去識別與保護重要的空間,而此目的激發了Gong創作這個作品。

此竹板畫是 2013 年 10 月 25 日舉辦的“Larry Grant 的晚會”的遺產,是聖約翰學院為紀念其創始校長而舉辦的年度 R. Grant Ingram 傑出講座系列的一部分。作為瑪斯昆族的知識守護者,Larry Grant 長老致力於保存、重振、以及分享他的瑪斯昆族與加拿大華人遺產。 Larry 是 qiyəplenəxʷ (卡皮拉諾)的後裔。 qiyəplenəxʷ (卡皮拉諾)是瑪斯昆族一位偉大的戰士,當年保衛了自己的民族,並且歡迎了第一批英國於西班牙探險家來到溫哥華。代表著qiyəplenəxʷ 的屋柱位於Allard Hall(卑詩大學法學院)和瑪斯昆族保護區。
