Goddess of the Day: September 1

Onatha - also Onatah. Iroquois Goddess of the Harvest.  Native Americans celebrate Onatha as the maiden goddess of wheat, maize, and the harvest. She was abducted by evil spirits and carried to the underworld.  The Sun produced a heat wave to rescue her, drying out the soil which allowed Onatha to rise from the earth and bloom into freedom.
