Charles Sanderson

Charlie, a Metis from Hilbre, Manitoba spends most of his time creating animal hide drums. He salvages these hides from animals killed in traffic accidents. His great respect for all life and what it represents leads him to often make an item of value from something that has been discarded.

At 87 years of age - he still spends alot of time scouring yard sales, dumps, friends sheds, etc. for items he may need for his projects.

His resourcefullness is well known among his neighbors. He is much respected in his community for this part of his nature.

There is never a day in Charlie's life that could be termed as boring. He is always thinking of the next new project he wants to do. He is never idle and is an example to us all.
