Tony Hunt Jr.


December 4, 1961

Victoria, BC

Tony Hunt Jr.'s crests are Raven and Sisiutl. He comes from a long line of artistic and cultural leaders. His great-grandfather, Mungo Martin, was a celebrated artist, and his father, Tony Hunt, is a Kwakwaka'wakw Chief who also established the Arts of the Raven Gallery in Victoria. While Tony has created a great deal of art for the market, he states that his most significant achievement was erecting the first longhouse in Fort Rupert in 70 years. Fort Rupert is the ancestral home of the Hunt family, and Tony completed this project with his father, his brother, and his cousins. In 1993, Tony's work was featured in the Chiefly Feasts exhibition held at New York's Museum of Natural History.
