The Archaeology of Indian Arm and Burrard Inlet
Surprisingly, given its proximity to Vancouver, we know relatively little about the archaeology of Indian Arm or the neighbouring inlets. Archaeological surveys of Indian Arm and Burrard Inlet have resulted in the identification of a range of sites, including village sites, short term camps and pictographs (rock paintings). Archaeological excavations have been conducted at two village sites, in Cates Park and in Belcarra Park. Excavations at these sites have demonstrated that villages were well established in Indian Arm over 3000 years ago. An abundance and variety of artifacts were recovered from these sites.

The Tsleil-Waututh are Coast Salish people who speak the down-river dialect of the Halkomelem language. Today, Tsleil-Waututh First Nation members live in a community located between Maplewood Flats and Deep Cove on the north shore of Burrard Inlet.
