About the Beaver Moon
The moon in November is known as Beaver moon.
It signified a time when the beaver fur was at its most perfect stage. If the hunters did not gather by the next moon the beaver would be sleeping,the swamps would be frozen and you would no longer be able to trap. They were valued for their beautiful hides. Both waterproof and warm, they also supplied an oil that was prized as a hair protector. Native peoples revered them as a great spirit animal and they held big medicine.
