    History

    The name for Bowen Island is Nex̱wlélex̱m in the Squamish language of the Squamish people, who used and occupied the area around Howe Sound, including Bowen Island. Areas such as Snug Cove and a few other parts of the island were used as campsites for hunting and gathering trips.

    Bowen Island has a traditional name in the Squamish language, Xwlíl’xhwm, which means "Fast Drumming Ground", although some authors attribute the name to the sound made by the ocean as it passes through the tiny pass between the Island's northern point and Finisterre Island. The tide rushing in and out is reminiscent of the sound of drums beating quickly. The name "Kwém̓shem" is used for Hood Point. Bowen Island is still used by people from Squamish and Musqueam for deer hunting.
