The Spirit of Little Deer

A Cherokee Legend

Little Deer was the protector of the deer. The Cherokee hunters were instructed in the ways of hunting the deer and prayed to the Deer Spirit for pardon when they were killed for food.

If a hunter killed a deer needlessly and without asking the Deer Spirit's pardon, Little Deer would track down the hunter and give him rheumatism so that he could hunt no more.
