"This design was inspired by my great-great-great-grandmother, Anisalaga (Mary Ebbets), my mother U'lumgelakw (Lily), and my daughter, Gana'o (Elissa).

The raven perched on the tongues of the Sisiutl represents the main crest brought to the Hunt family through marriage from the Tongass Tlingit of Alaska.

The Sisiutl is the crest from my mother's tribe, the Mamalilikala of Mimkwamlis (Village Island). It is said the Sisiutl originated from a small stream on Village Island called Ts Tsa wa yukwsilas.

The central figure in the design represents my daughter Gana'o, dressed in a Chilkat blanket and wearing a raven frontlet.

The Chilkat blanket and raven frontlet are two other privileges that came from Anisalaga. The raven is coloured the same as the Chilkat blanket to acknowledge the skill Anisalaga had as a Chilkat blanket weaver."
