The Chief of the Otter Band is Chief Warrior Shield

Chief Warrior Shield is a Christian man who respects all other faiths. He loves learning about our heritage. He stands strongly against any kind of racism.  It's not about how light or dark your skin is... It's about the Blood that ties us which makes us family. Chief Warrior Shield wears many different hats and is very knowledgeable in many things.  He is a retired Marine, life insurance agent, sells machines that make Kangen Alkaline water, credit repair, security at Charlotte Motor Speedway, and Trust. We the Otters hope you will take the time to get to know him on a personal level.  Chief Warrior Shield stands by the laws of attraction.   He says tithe, give to The Heavenly Father, give to someone else but give to yourself.  The otter is his spirit animal.  You may not know that Otters are considered lucky animals in many American Indian cultures and the otter is a symbol of loyalty and honesty in some West Coast tribes, but in Northern British Columbia and the Alaskan coast, river otters (usually called "land-otters") were associated with ghosts and drowning and were regarded by the people. Animal totems hold the protective powers of the animal they represent. Thus, the otter totem is a helpful symbol for manifesting more joy, playfulness, and creativity in your life. If the otter is your spirit animal, that means you are sociable and find joy in making others' lives better. You are positive and see the good in all things. Traditional female attributes come to the surface as you feel more inclined to care for family and find purpose helping others. Others may also view them as symbols of loyalty. This completely describes Chief Warrior Shield.  

It was taboo to eat land-otters in many Pacific Northwest tribes, and in colonial times, the trapping of land-otters to sell their furs to non-Natives became a source of tension in some communities. Sea otters, on the other hand, had long been hunted for their skins and meat by these tribes, and sea otter fur was considered very prestigious on the Northwest Coast.

Otters are also used as clan animals in some Native American cultures. Tribes with Otter Clans include the Muskogee Creek (whose Otter Clan is named Osanalgi or Osvnvlke,) the Chippewa (whose Otter Clan is called Nigig,) the Menominee, and the Abenaki. On the Northwest Coast, the otter is sometimes used as a totem pole crest.
