In Native American mythology, Ohtas is called the Doll Being and is the basis for the aptly named Doll Dance. During the first ritual dances, a small child made a doll from cornhusk. This doll turned out to possess great powers of healing. Since then, an annual tradition of making wooden dolls evolved along with a dance to honor Ohtas. The dolls later served as a kind of good luck charm to the people.
