The Kushtaka is said to be impervious to bullets, thus leaving firearms out of the equation. It was black and feathery, and black twinkling eyes danced with ancient merriment. Heaton and a small crew were taken to the cave on a one-day trip by Dave Love in a skiff in the summer of 1995. The entire ledge was made of quartz! Most eye witnesses claim that the Sasquatch has a conical head, a flat face, black skin, long arms, and no neck. Perhaps it is this primitive connection with mankind's past that gives the metal power over the Kushtaka. But not by his Sentinel.
It is about a meter wide and 10 meters long. Jim stirred and sank back under. At this point, he made for the town of Wrangell. Si je me réfère à une émission de Perdus en Alaska, où un jeune homme fait son jogging dans le bois, et aperçoit son ami devant lui qui court, il tente de l'interpeller mais celui-ci fait la sourde oreille. The kushtaka paddled the boat and did not answer him; land-otters did not speak any more than sea-otters did. However, Kushtaka legends are not always pleasant.
It might be reasonable to assume that medicine men with such powers are few and far between in the twenty-first century. Rafe and Henri didn't know a thing about it. An international team of scientists claim they have found Asia's answer to Bigfoot, offering up tracks and a few hairs as evidence. The voice was gone from his thoughts. I'll do some fly-fishing this evening, and tomorrow morning I'll get out in the canoe with you. In other words, it is considered to be both malicious and very evil. Because there wouldn't be a next time for this village.
I left come the next morning, which was a fine sunny day. In horror at his approaching fate, Blair's eyes snapped open. More often than not, they are just plain mean. Suddenly, one of the campers cried out. They are entitled to believe what they want. But he still had the site; he planned to keep it the full long weekend. Le jeune homme l'appelle à l'instant sur son cellulaire, mais son ami lui affirme qu'il est chez lui bien tranquille.

This was happening now, right at the moment. Not even Rafe and Henri, he saw with a pang, talking softly and sitting beside— Oh, Jim. It should have been buried.
It would be a bloody, violent struggle in which the Kushtaka might emerge victorious, due to its superior strength and perhaps its ability to shapeshift. Finally, however, they placed dog bones in the rope so that they would stick into his hands, dog bones being the greatest enemies of the land otters. What if his spiritual power wasn't strong enough to combat these two old ones? What would a fishing trip be without a couple of good honest lies between friends? Some stories told of kushtaka people coming back to their loved ones, if only briefly; they were warning tales about avoiding the social blunders that led people into the kushtakas' hands, but still it was written. Blair looked over his cupped hands. Despairing, Blair looked around at the other children, boys and girls. The Kushtaka is known for being able to eerily mimic the sound of a crying baby and the screams of a woman, and it uses these sounds to entice people into the forest or to the water's edge. Jim would only now start to get curious about his disappearance—and when he started to look, his first thought was not going to be 'Blair's been abducted by evil supernatural land-otters.
Despite the fact that the Kushtaka are considered evil and overwhelmingly regarded with a certain level of trepidation, perhaps because otters are just so darn cute and fuzzy, there are instances of benevolent behavior on the part of the Kushtaka. Their bipedal gait, appearance, and behavior indicate a closer relationship to humans than to the apes. Perhaps because Blair was a shaman of a different culture and century to them, and did not display his power the way Tlingit shamans would have, they did not recognize him as had the fisherman who'd taken him captive. Blair was going to be devoured and he couldn't speak to warn him, as mute as the other otter-creatures. The people blinked and stared, saying nothing.
Really the only similarity I have found between them is that they are spirits with water affinity that identify with the name Kooshdaakaa not in spelling. Tendrils of mist gave way as the canoe approached an aluminum fishing boat that bobbed in the water, empty. I looked down below me and picked out a big tree with a bushy top, taller than the rest and about fifty feet to the right of the ledge. What if they already knew who he was, and knew he couldn't hurt them? Now they stared at him, silent and angry, with their glittering otter eyes. They often come in with fog.
