North American - A spirit ogre of the Shoshone Indians. He stole the two children of Dove and chased after them when their mother rescued them. He would have caught them but Badger dug two holes, hiding the fugitives in one and directing Dzoavits into the other, which he then sealed with a large boulder. In some accounts they are referred to as stone giants. Sometimes known as Dzoavits.
