Hunt, Tom D. (Waϯawidi)

Tom D. Hunt, also called Waϯawidi, is the son of Hereditary Chief George Hunt and May Hunt. Tom D. Hunt is a member of the Kwakiutl, or Kwakwaka’wakw Nation, born in 1964. Tom began apprenticing in Kwakiutl art with his father at the age of twelve and later worked with his brother, George Hunt Jr. In Campbell River. He worked with his grandfather, the late Sam Henderson. During that stage of his artistic development, Tom learned the traditional form of the Nakwaxda’xw Nation (Blunden Harbour).

In 1983, he moved to his home village of Fort Rupert, where he worked as an assistant to his uncle, Calvin Hunt. This apprenticeship was an important period in Tom’s development as a versatile and accomplished artist. Tom has also been an assistant carver to Susan Point on several of her large sculptures. He moves comfortably from massive wood sculptures to very small, intricate pieces. Many of Tom’s masks have been presented at potlatches

I had the pleasure of meeting Tom in person and am honoured to call him my friend. I can only confirm that he is a very kind, warm hearted and highly knowledgeable and talented man with highest values and strong believes in his roots who is very involved to keep the history of his peoples alive.
