Hi, my uncle had a homestead in Green Bay and your website is one of the only places I've found pictures of the area. We moved there for a while when I was a kid but then my mom decided we needed to go to school and moved. I have always wanted to return to the area. Is there any info you can give me about getting back up there and do you have any knowledge of a cabin that was there? We lived there in the mid 70's.

Was your uncle Darryl James? If so his old cabin still exists! I have cleaned it all up and adopted the maintenance of it. The cabin and Green Bay are very special to me - I have collected many of Darryl’s things and other artifacts which are on display at the cabin. If you come to the Valley look me up - I’ll take you there!

First Nations culture is not for “show” in Bella Coola. It is a way of life.

What an inspiring life you lead! I understand it must be full of struggles, but their lessons would be worth every minute of it. May I ask how you keep well in the winter with food, heating, and all of the other major necessities?

Boiling water on my new rocket stove. Just a handful of twigs did the job - with zero emissions - no smoke! Next step is to mortar it all together for use as patio heater/ cooker.
