"The beaver was considered sacred by the Ojibway who, because of its meat and fur, regarded it as a source of life… The first beaver of the year that is caught by the Ojibway is always eaten in a manner that is considered sacred. Some Indians would spread a clean cloth and have the first beaver eaten on the floor, not on the table. All the bones are tied in a bundle in a clean cloth with ribbons and tobacco and are thrown in water. This is believed to bring good luck in catching beaver for the coming season."
