Henry Hunt (born 1923) is a Canadian First Nations artist from the Kwakwaka'wakw (formerly "Kwakiutl") people of coastal British Columbia.
He was born in 1923 in the Kwakwaka'wakw community of Fort Rupert, B.C. He is a descendant of the renowned Native ethnologist George Hunt. He began carving at the British Columbia Provincial Museum in Victoria in 1954, where he remained until 1974. He succeeded his father-in-law Mungo Martin there as chief carver in 1962.
He is the father of the artists Shirley Ford, Tony Hunt, Richard Hunt, and Stanley Hunt.
He and Tony Hunt, his eldest son, carved a memorial pole to Martin at Alert Bay, B.C., in 1970-71.
