Patrick Hunt was born in Victoria in 1966. He is the youngest son of hereditary chief, George and Mary Hunt and the grandson of Sam and May Henderson. His family was involved with the creation of Thunderbird Park for the Royal British Columbia Museum in Victoria which created the first formal training programme for new indigenous artists. Patrick was always involved with Kwakwaka'wakw culture. He learned the legends, rights, songs, dances and privileges from an early age on.
Patrick has worked on projects with Calvin Hunt, Chief Tony Hunt, John Livingston, his uncle Bill Henderson, Beau Dick and many more. His work is clearly defined by the Fort Rupert style of carving which dates back to the influence of Henry Hunt Sr.
