Charlie James

Kwakwaka’wakw

(1865-1961)


“Charlie James, son of a non-Native father and a Kwakwaka’wakw mother, was a prolific carver who made full-size and model totem poles, food bowls, and masks. One of his most popular types of totem pole (which remains popular today), was a two-figure version featuring an anthropomorphic being at the bottom and a thunderbird with outstretched wings at the top. Charlie James’s wife, Sara Nina, had several children from a previous marriage, one of whom would become another great Kwakawaka’wakw artist, Mungo Martin.”
