We invite you to join us and take a look back in time and experience a World War 2 war bond rally at The Shipyards, climb mountains with Neal Carter and family, take a ride on a North Vancouver street car, and so much more.

As a special bonus, our friends at the North Vancouver City Library have created a video tutorial, with Kendra Tubbs, Library Technician, on how to digitize your 8mm and Super 8 home movies at the North Vancouver City Library.

Canoe culture has been a part of the Indigenous Coast Salish Peoples’ ways since time immemorial. Canoe racing is more than a sport – it’s a way of life. When you are on the water you are one with the ancestors, every stroke, every time you put your paddle in the water, it is a prayer, a connection to the ancestors.

This film, researched and curated by Meghan Ormandy who was a curatorial intern with MONOVA: Museum of North Vancouver for 8 months, provides a a rare insight into the history and continued practice of canoe racing and its spiritual significance for the Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səl̓ílwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) First Nations.
