Artist Statement : "According to our Kwagulth Elders, the sun is what we used to worship. As well as the Chief of Chiefs, or great Transformer, the sun is used sometimes at the beginning of potlatches in the winter dance ceremonies. Presently Chief George Hunt Sr. holds the rights to use the sun mask." - Ross Hunt Sr.
