The Lotari are raccoon Hsunchen. The Lotari clans are less nomadic than many Hsunchen, though families often move to new camps in Sea Season, and there are frequently extended gathering and hunting expeditions. There's no fixed pattern to their wanderings, though they seldom visit the higher elevations, and prefer to be near swamps or streams.

The Lotari do not hunt their totem.

The magic of transformation is Mask, Raccoon Skin, and Nimble Paws. Shamans return from their vision quest as the opposite gender.
