Artist Statement : "Our father was an 'Eagle', and there were four in the village of Fort Rupert. They carry the oral history of families. From them a person learns their lineage and history. A person learns how certain songs, dances and crests came to be in your house, and if they were passed down from the great flood, or passed as a dowry through marriage. When doing these designs I think of our parents, grandparents and our many uncles and aunties." - Ross Hunt Sr.
