Native American God

Also known as CAPA

Beaver God

He abounds — he is bountiful. He beavers away everywhere. Damnation takes on a whole new meaning. Wherever there is a dam and it’s near a Native American tribe, BEAVER is at work — with the emphasis mostly on work.

You might say he’s the God of Storage, as he loves packing things away neatly ready for the winter months. But he’s not averse to a bit of well-intentioned thievery. See SNOQUALM.

Among the Lakota he is known as Capa.
