Bill Helin (Welaaxam Yout) was born in the Northwest Coast community of Prince Rupert, BC. Growing up, Bill spent countless hours listening to his grandmother as she taught him the many legends and songs of the Tsimshian people. Through his books and plush toys, he has captured the essence of these stories and helped introduce his cultures to a new generation of learners.
