Biography   Tony (Chief) Hunt, Sr.

Tony Hunt (born 1942, Kwakwaka'wakw) is a Canadian First Nations artist noted for his paintings and carved totem poles. Each of the latter is carved in traditional fashion from a single cedar log.

He was born in 1942 at the Kwakwaka'wakw community of Alert Bay, British Columbia as the oldest of three sons of Henry Hunt and his wife. The youth received early training from his maternal grandfather Mungo Martin. Through his maternal line, Hunt is a hereditary chief of the Kwakwaka'wakw.

His father was a professional carver. Hunt and his brothers are also descendants of the renowned ethnologist George Hunt (Tlingit), who collected hundreds of Kwakiutl artifacts for an exhibit at the 1893 World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago.
