Animal: Otter Meaning: The Otter is seen as a mischievous force, but a harmless one, unlike the raven. This playful animal is celebrated by Native Americans for its balance of work and play. Otters are looked to as a force of laughter, empathy and friendliness.
Otter Moon : Otter meaning is also closely connected to lunar symbolism. Water, the moon and otters have a long, symbolic history together. Indeed, the Algonquin named one of their full moons the "otter moon". Otters are most active in the spring and summer. Typically the otter moon would be the first full moon after the spring equinox.

The Lutre takes its name from the French ‘loutre’ meaning otter. Originally designed to a customers specification, it is essentially a shortened version of our Ottertail with a slightly wider blade to give it a similar surface area. Edenwood Canoe Paddles www.edenwoodpaddles.co.uk
