Okota comes from the word ‘Kota” and the expression ‘O’. ‘O’ is often times used when one is in awe of something. ‘Kota’ is derived from the name of the Native American tribe, Lakota. The Lakota people are believers in the turtle creation story.



Long ago the creator summoned a turtle to go to the bottom of the sea and bring forth earth. When the turtle emerged from the water it had upon its back the mud foundation of the land. This land was built upon by the Creator, forming our world.



From this Native American creation story turtles have become symbols of a strong foundation, longevity, and wisdom. Their slow movements remind us to slow down, and enjoy life on this earth. Their long lifespan, and wrinkled appearance make it a symbol of longevity and wisdom. The turtle is said to have the oldest of all animal souls.



Okota honors this Native American symbolism in their work. Okota works to create a strong foundation for the start of a changed life. Okota makes this foundation strong and capable of long time success with their wisdom gained through years of experience. In what can be a stressful time, Okota does all the work, making it possible for our clients to be able to slow down, and enjoy the process.



Let Okota be your turtle.
