  • Biography: As a Chemical Engineer and Environmental Chemist, Charles has been working with Native American Tribes for over a decade and has been with the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe for the past seven years. Charles' duties in safe-guarding the tribe's access to a healthy "Giizhigong" (Sky-World) have him cover the tribal interests in ambient air, indoor air, energy, and up to three-degrees of separation in interconnected activities that may affect the three areas of interest. On his off time, he is one of the editors to the Freelang® Ojibwe Electronic Dictionary and often contributes to Wikipedia®.
