Andrew George Jr. is a member of the Wet'suwet'en Nation from central British Columbia, Canada.

More recently, he was head chef at the Four Host First Nations pavilion at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver (the first games in which Indigenous peoples were recognized as official host partners by the IOC), and in 2012 was part of group of culinary experts from 25 countries on an initiative sponsored by the US Department of State called "Culinary Diplomacy: Promoting Cultural Understanding Through Food" which toured the US, including a meeting at the White House with First Lady Michelle Obama.
