Vancouver is arranged in the customary area of the Squamish, Musqueam and Tsleil-Waututh First Nations, people from the Coast Salish etymological social affair. The begetters of these social affairs settled in the Vancouver area more than 8,000 years earlier. For the Coast Salish people, as ious Indigenous social events on Canada's northwest float, salmon was the fundamental food source. They similarly relied upon other fish, shellfish, sea and land warm blooded creatures, plants and berries. The abundance of salmon, which could be shielded through drying or smoking, influenced a consistent sustenance to source and contemplated the Coast Salish to live in greater, more socially stratified get-togethers than was typical among Indigenous society in Canada.
