Land Acknowledgment

The Department of Cellular & Physiological Sciences (CPS) is located at the UBC Point Grey campus situated within the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territory of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam) people. As part of the larger UBC community, we are guests and settlers on the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), Sel̓íl̓witulh (Tsleil-Waututh) and Syilx (Okanagan) Nations. 

As guests and settlers on Indigenous lands, we share an important responsibility in learning with and about our host Nations and strengthening these relationships. We will continue building on existing partnerships with our host Nations through mutual respect and reciprocity.
