Growing up in a large family (we didnt know we were poor), he bartered pictures with town kids and carved trinkets to sell to tourists. Encouraged by his teachers, he attended art school in Minneapolis, then moved to New York City. At the Art Students League, George was swept up in Abstract Expressionism, showed his work in Greenwich Village lofts, and spent summers working and painting in Provincetown, Massachusetts.

He later taught at the Rhode Island School of Design. But in 1970, his direction turned toward home, and George began to search out his Ojibway heritage. Turning the Feather Around is a work of intimate personal disclosure that captures the pulse of the speaking voice and the vision of the artists eye.
