Part I - Larry Grant: Not Belonging

Elder Larry Grant is of mixed Chinese and Musqueam ancestry. Born premature on a hop field in Agassiz, B.C., Grant was raised in Musqueam traditional territory. After retiring as a longshoreman, Grant enrolled in the First Nations Language Program at the University of British Coumbia (UBC) to reconnect with his mother's ancestral language, hən'q'əmin'əm'. Through this transformational process Grant achieved his goal of learning how to welcome people to Musqueam territory using the language, discovered his aptitude for sharing stories, and developed a strong passion for revitalizing hən'q'əmin'əm'. Today he serves the Musqueam Nation as the Language and Culture Consultant. At UBC, Grant plays a key role in educating others about the first peoples who lived here. He is the Elder-in-Residence at the UBC First Nations House of Learning where he welcomes and connects with an array of visitors, students and staff from around the world.
