Tom D. Hunt, also called Watawidi, is the son of Hereditary Chief George Hunt and Mary Hunt.
Born in Victoria in 1964, he is a member of the Kwakwaka'wakw Nation. Tom began apprenticing in Kwakwaka'wakw art with his father at the age of 12 and later worked with his brother George Hunt Jr. When he was a little bit older, Tom spent time working with his late maternal grandfather, Sam Henderson, in Campbell River, and learned the traditional artistic style of the 'Nakwaxda'xw Nation (Blunden Harbour).
In 1983, Tom moved to his home village of Fort Rupert, and worked with his uncle Calvin Hunt as an assistant. This apprenticeship was an important period in Tom’s development as a versatile and accomplished artist. He moves comfortably from massive wood sculptures to very small, intricate pieces.
