Beaver is considered an industrious and kindly creature. Beaver’s medicine power is industriousness and persistence. Beaver can be identified by large incisor teeth and a crosshatched round tail.
Northwest Coast Indian lore speaks of Beaver, who at first was a woman who loved to swim. Like many of the stories of those first peoples it is both entertainment and a cautionary tale.
A woman, who was the first ancestor of the Beaver Family, had a husband who was not a kind and loving husband but was very demanding. The woman dammed up a stream to create a pool to swim in so she could not hear her husband complain when she was under water. Soon the pool grew into a lake and she spent more time away from her husband. He scolded and threatened her for ignoring her wifely chores so gradually she lived in the lake altogether. Her leather apron turned into a tail and she became covered with brown fur. She had spent so much time in the lake that she became a Beaver.
