Tony Hunt Jr.

Tony Hunt Jr. was a talented carver who was born into one of the most prominent families in the realm of the Northwest Coast Native carving. His great-grandfather was Mungo Martin, a man who has been credited with the revitalization of much of the Kwakwaka’wakw culture, which was in danger of being lost following the banning of the potlatch. The potlatch was the traditional form of celebration at which the dances and songs of the culture were performed and passed on.


Tony Hunt Jr. is now widely recognized as one of the foremost carvers in British Columbia. His work was widely featured in the exhibition, Chiefly Feasts, and he participated in both group and solo exhibitions throughout his career.


Tony lived and worked in the Victoria area, honing his skills and sharing his knowledge with other young carvers.
