Tomas Hunt 

Tomas Hunt (Navajo and Dutch) born and raised on the Navajo Nation, began dancing at powwows and social gatherings from the time he could walk. In powwows, he would compete in various styles of dance, such as: the grass dance, chicken dance, and fancy feather dance. As he progressed and aged, his peers and elders encouraged him to learn a special style of dance called the hoop dance. By the young age of 13, he developed a passion for the dance. More so, he loved to share the origins and teachings with people from all over the world at various facilities such as The Navajo Village Heritage Center, Sander’s Into the Grand, Antelope Slot Canyon Tours, and Amangiri Resort. Being in the business of Native American performing arts for the past 8 years, he learned many of the Navajo teachings, stories and history from respected, Navajo elder, Storyteller and Historian Wally Brown. Tomas continues to share his art and teachings with those who are interested, whether it may be for education or simply entertainment.
