The Tsleil-Waututh Nation and Darwin have come together in a joint-venture partnership to develop the North Shore Innovation District. We are two entities and partners with deep roots in this entirely unique part of the world.
Our shared vision for the site is to plan for our future generations by creating a next generation business model that is like no other in our region.
Tsleil-Waututh Nation Culture at the North Shore Innovation District
The heart of the Tsleil-Waututh Nation community today is centered around the Burrard Inlet, between Maplewood Flats and Deep Cove in North Vancouver, British Columbia. The Tsleil-Waututh's record of ancient use in the area is very rich, with archaeological evidence that demonstrates almost 4,000 years of occupation here and oral history of use of the North Shore Innovation District site.
The Partnership with the Tsleil-Waututh Nation opens opportunities to express and interpret the First Nation's cultural relationship to the lands and the water through public art opportunities, public space, community connectivity and trail design.
The Tsleil-Waututh Nation will also be featured in the Community Hub building, located in the heart of the Innovation District, as it is intended to be a cultural space showcasing Tsleil-Waututh Nation history, culture and art.
