The Legend of the Corn Husk Doll

At one time the Corn Husk People had very beautiful faces. The Creator placed them on the earth to be the companions to the children. Their task was to play and entertain the little ones. After a while though, the lovely cornhusk people became obsessed with their own beauty. They forgot their appointed task and spent most of their time gazing at their own refections in calm pools of water. The children began to complain that the cornhusk people would not play with them. The Creator, greatly disturbed at this, took away the faces of the corn husk people and turned them into dolls.
