Charles “Charlie” George is originally from Bella Bella, in British Columbia’s Central Coast region. He’s a Heiltsuk First Nations wood carver, and has been honing his craft for more than 50 years. His hands are worn but steady. They guide a sharp knife across a plank of pale northern white-cedar as he sits in bright afternoon light. Charlie’s wearing his working clothes today. Fragrant curls of wood fall near his feet.
Charlie lives at Nuutsumuut with his wife and 3 sons. They are among the building’s first tenants, a community that also includes youth transitioning to independent living, young families and elders.
