Sacred Otter

North American - A chief of the Blackfoot tribe. He and his son were caught in a blizzard when out hunting and they sheltered under a buffalo hide. He dreamt that he visited the tepee of Estonea-pesta, Lord of Cold Weather, who gave him the Snow-lodge and a magic pipe. When his tribe were caught in another blizzard the following year, he lit the pipe and the smoke drove away the storm clouds and his people were saved. Also referred to as Sacred Otter.
