Mother Feeding Baby Hologram

Mother Feeding Baby Hologram Coin

In the traditions of his ancestors, Richard Hunt has crafted a wonderful story about a family of eagles nurturing, loving and growing. But within this narrative lies the call for all parents to cherish their young, just as eagle parents work tirelessly to nurture their young; for therein lies the future of the world. It is also a reminder of nature's abundance, a bounty that should never be abused nor taken for granted, just as the eagle only takes what it needs to feed its family.

Since time immemorial, First Nations people have viewed art as much more than simply one person's creative expression. More importantly, art has always been a means to preserve their history and traditions, and to honour the natural world that supports them. First Nations people are ever cognizant of their surroundings. They carefully observe the natural processes taking place around them, draw lessons from what they see, and preserve these teachings in art.

Richard Hunt

Richard

I try to remember to thank our ancestors for keeping our traditions and culture alive.  They went through a lot of hardship for us.  The main influence in my artwork came from my father, Henry Hunt, as well as from Willie Seaweed's work.  These are the people who turned our works from being considered a craft to being regarded as historical art.  I believe the time has come to recognize our works as cultural property.

When I make something, I am claiming the rights to it for myself, and at the same time for our children and all  Kwakwaka'wakw people.  They are the ones who really own it.

I was thirteen when I decided that I wanted to be a carver.  My brothers and I had gone berry picking in Saanich to make money.  I dreamt of berries all that night, and woke up the next morning knowing that I wanted to be a carver like my dad.  My mother told me to go and learn from my father, and that's how I started, making little paddles and masks.  It was a hobby that turned into a way of making an income through my school years.  The more I carved, the more I realized that what I was carving came from my culture.  That is why I believe that what I create is cultural property and it is my job to educate the public about my culture as much as I can to keep it alive.
