ONATHA (pronounced oh-NAW-tha) is the Iroquois Goddess of wheat and the harvest. Her mother is the earth Goddess Eithinoha. One day while Onatha was out gathering dew, she was abducted by the demon Hahgwehdaetgah, who dragged her down to the underworld. Eithinoha asked the sun to help her look for her daughter, and the sun searched intensely for weeks. The heat produced by the sun freed Onatha from the underworld, and she rose from the earth like wheat. Unfortunately, the demons come back for her every year when the sun turns his back, and he must search for her again every spring. Onatha's name is also seen as ONATAH.
