50 Places Project: Burrard Inlet

səl̓ilw̓ət (Sleilwaut) is the Hun’qumyi’num name for Burrard Inlet and Indian Arm. It’s the place from which the səlil̓ilw̓ətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) people derive their name. Tsleil-Waututh means “The People of the Inlet.” This marine area lies within the territory of the səlil̓ilw̓ətaʔɬ (Tsleil-Waututh), Skwxwú7mesh (Squamish) and xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) peoples.
