Deer Woman is a familiar figure to Native Americans throughout North America. City Indians refer to her as "Deer Abby".
Deer Woman is a spirit who will appear as a deer, a human woman or a combination of both. Therefore, she can be confused with Furries running around loose, although she does not manifest the large googly eyes or fluorescent colors of the latter. She is still seen today in Indian casino parking lots, mobile home parks and The Rez by people of many nations. However, people that are half Indian will only see half of Deer Woman and so forth.
It is said that she makes appearances as a reminder of love, fertility, chastity and not being a dick. Catholic Indian girls who see Deer Woman will immediately need to get rid of any patent leather shoes and short skirts. Horny young male Indians or married ones playing around can be seduced by Deer Woman and can die of unrequited
love lust after seeing her. This makes her a favorite among people who like to say "I told ya so.". Meanwhile, the Lakota people just figure that Deer Woman is actually the spirit of Bambi's mom out for revenge.
