Vancouver’s latest crosswalk honours our province’s Musqueam First Nations.

On Friday, which was also National Indigenous Peoples Day, a new pedestrian crossing designed by Musqueam First Nation artist Robyn Sparrow was unveiled in Vancouver.


This new three-section crosswalk is located at the pedestrian crossings on South Granville Street, between 70th and 68th avenues.


The crosswalk art includes white, black, red, and yellow colours. This location was selected due to the fact that it’s in proximity to Musqueam’s ancient village and cemetery c̓əsnaʔəm, as well as the Fraser River.

Just last month, Port Moody also unveiled their city’s new public art display. A rainbow crosswalk was installed in the 200-block of Newport Drive.
