Apache Indian shamans offer prayers to the gans wearing black masks and high headdresses made of wooden slats, and hold dances in ceremonial houses known as kivas. the gans are asked to drive evil spirits away and will use their considerable powers to attract good fortune if satisfied. Ironically, when the first white settlers arrived in America, they identified the gans with demonic spirits.
