About the Artist

Wagella Hunt is from the Heiltsuk Nation of Bella Bella, BC and Sapotaweyak Cree Nation in Manitoba (Treaty 4) and is the creative mind behind Bella Cree Beads.

Growing up in the East Vancouver Urban Indigenous community, Wagella learned how to bead from her mother creating items to sell at pow wows and canoe gatherings to earn money for summer spending. She picked up beads again during the pandemic as a way to calm her heart and mind following shift work in the DTES.

Currently, she is working with Providence Healthcare as the Indigenous Cultural Safety Lead developing and facilitating education to promote fair treatment of Indigenous people in the healthcare systems. Outside of work, Wagella participates in cultural ceremony, dancing, learning the Heiltsuk language and creating art through her beadwork.
