He was born into the Acoma Pueblo tribe in New Mexico in the middle of the 19th century, and ultimately lived as an indian in a white world. 

Peter Nabokov tells the story of Hunt in How The World Moves

The book forces readers to confront the fascination with native culture and artifacts American display on one hand, while uprooting and exterminating tribes on the other hand.
