Ever affable (say what?), sometimes bombastic, (read: jerk) always iconoclastic (meaning "one who smashes Idols"), Blueotter is always full of surprises, just like his animal namesake. Instead of bashing clams on his stomach while lying on his back floating in the water (another of Blueotter's many useless talents) like Otters do - his favorite pastime is bashing peoples heads full of knowledge that some of them yearn to know -- and others would just as soon like to forget.

Blueotter received his name directly from Creator in August 2000 -- the night after he was given another name in a naming ceremony -- a name (Runningbull) that he had carried forward from his work with another nation. Puzzled at first, Blueotter figured "Creator must have thought, 'New Nation, New Work, New Name'" which was customary anciently but ignorantly scoffed at by many of today's natives. Blueotter discovered later that the color blue when associated with a person or thing, in Cherokee Way, means that person or thing is a "spoiler" and is the Cherokee equivalent of the Greek word "Iconoclast."

Will Blueotter is founder of the Oklevueha Native American Church of The White Roots of Peace. Born in Minnesota, his mother's home is Vicksburg, Mississippi. He is Cherokee, descending from Savanukah (Cherokee for "Shawnee Chief"0, Raven of Chota, First Beloved Man 1781-83) and Powhatan, descending from King Powhatan and his Cherokee wife AmoPostuskee and his daughter Matoaka aka "Pocahontas."

In 1985, Mad Bear Anderson appeared to him in a dream suggesting he follow up his Cherokee genealogy. This later led Blueotter to Zula Brinkerhoff, Daughter of David Monongye, Keeper of the Hopi Prophecy, who then introduced him to John "Rolling Thunder" Pope. Between 1999 and 2013, he has run up against several corrupt "Chiefs' and a few good Indians too!
