The Musqeum people have lived in their present location for thousands of years and they have a deep connection to the Fraser River and its surrounding waters.
The Keepers of the River, to the Musqeum, the Fraser River was their highway. Long before the first ships appeared on the horizon, the Musqeum used their River as a means of transportation. They paddled their canoes from village to village and across the waters to Vancouver Island. As the canoes glided over the top of the River, their paddles dug deep, and as they lifted them out of the water, they left behind ripples that turned in to waves. The women then wove the beautiful patterns created by these ripples in the water on the blankets that clothed them. The image of River Ripples re-creates these designs, connecting once more to the waters that are so much part of Musqeum heritage.
