These are a race of cannibal monsters from the myths of the Iroquois and Seneca Native Americans. They are of human appearance but have skin covered in scales of stone. They were once humans but during a particularly harsh Winter they were so hungry they ate other humans. They then turned on their own families and neighbors and eventually turned into cannibal monsters with skin made of stone scales. Once there was one Jokao that became aware of what he had become and he was filled with regret. He ran south away from the lands of the Jokao until a large deep river blocked his path. He called for help; a man in a canoe came to him and offered him hot deer fat. When the Jokao drank this, his scales melted away and he was human again.

There are many ceremonies where the Jokao are associated with the False Faces.

Jokao has been viewed 1984 times.
