  • Designed by John Velten

  • The Beaver Symbol in Indigenous Art

    Well known for its industriousness and building skills, Beaver keeps to themselves and presents only when deemed absolutely necessary. They care little for the activities of humans, except when they feel that their work is discredited or their skill insulted. The busy creatures are also known to give wise advice.
