About W. Ben Hunt: Traveled widley, visiting pueblos and hogans of the Southwest and reservations of the Midwest and Canada to acquaint himself with Indian lore. While he was living and camping with the Indians, they gave him the name "Tasunka Witko", which means Crazy Horse. He was also known as "Kachina Ben" because of the Kachina Indian dolls he was so adept at carving.
