Land Otter Man, aka, The Kushtaka Kushtaka or Kooshdakhaa is a
Tlingit word meaning "land otter man." The Kushtaka is on one hand
the nemeses of the Tlingit people, yet necessary to their Shamans
who play a critical role in the survival of the Tlingits. The
Tlingit people are as mysterious in their beliefs as the Kushtaka,
making for strange bedfellows. "Otter Tales- Stories of the Land
Otter Man and Other Spirit Stories based on the Folklore of the
Tlingit of Southeastern Alaska" is an excerpt from the book, "In
Search of the Kushtaka" by Dennis Waller. The purpose of these 10
stories is to serve as an introduction into the myths and legends
of the Tlingit People.
