  • Description


    Hello from Haida Gwaii, formerly the Queen Charlotte Islands!

    Our little house is almost 100 years old and could use some help with interior painting, shop organization, the yard, and odd projects around the home in exchange for the experience of living here for a bit. This is one of the most remote places on earth, and under Haida rule primarily.

    We have been on Workaway site for a bit but we travel often, and have not yet found a fit where someone is coming when we are also there! If you have skills with painting, organizing, building shelving, or yard projects, and want to see Haida Gwaii, reach out!

    Note: We are not close to a city or many 'specialty eating' places (either groceries or restaurants). This is a rugged community and we eat a lot off the land (fish, kelp, cockles, deer, berries). In our house, we eat what our family hunts and gathers, in addition to store-bought food. If we are eating together, please know we will be eating what we have caught. We are not vegetarians.

    We have a sweet private upstairs area for guests, with its own washroom, if you chose to come visit!

    Haida Gwaii is one of the most remote places on the planet. The biodiversity here is endless.

    It's mostly outdoorsy people. The community is a mixture of Haida First Nations and non-indigenous people, a lot of very interesting folk who are not interested in cities.

    This is a fishing and nature community that is physically remarkable, ocean-bound, lots of rivers, and lots of things to do if you love the natural world!

    Cet hôte propose un échange linguistique
    I speak French and Spanish quite well when I am in that environment, rusty right now as I am using only English. I would love to have a french or Spanish speaker here so I could practice those languages and help the person out with English. I speak only a few key phrases of my indigenous language (Onkwehonkwe) and would welcome a Haudenausaune speaker here to learn from. Also my ancestral languages are Dutch and German, which I would also like to learn.

    Time off here is the natural world. We are close to incredible hikes, rivers and campgrounds. There are no movie theatres and stuff like that here, but there are a handful of little restaurants, and good grocery stores. Lots of artists here too.
