Women of Papiyek by Quelemia Sparrow At Vancouver’s inception in 1886 came the desire to create a park at Xʷay’ Xʷəy’, now known as Stanley Park. The battle to remove the mixed race, Indigenous/Settler families from Papiyek, now known as Brockton Point, ensued. It lasted until the 1930’s when the families were evicted, forcibly removed, their homes were burnt to the ground. This is the story of three Indigenous women who lived in Papiyek.
