Larry Grant, Musqueam Elder, was born and raised in Musqueam traditional territory by a traditional hən̓ q̓ əmin̓ əm̓ speaking Musqueam family. After 4 decades as a tradesman, Larry enrolled in the First Nations Languages Program, which awoke his memory of the embedded value that the hən̓ q̓ əmin̓ əm̓ language has to self-identity, kinship, culture, territory, and history prior to European contact. He is presently assisting in revitalizing hən̓ q̓ əmin̓ əm̓ in the Musqueam Language and Culture Department, and co-teaching the introductory hən̓ q̓ əmin̓ əm̓ course through UBC.
