The Deer Woman is a spirit in Native American mythology who depending on the situation and your actions she can be one of two things. To women, children, and men who are respectful of women and children, she is associated with fertility and love. But, those who have harmed women and children, she is vengeful and murderous, and could possibly lure these people to their deaths. She appears as either a beautiful young woman with deer feet, or a deer.
“Deer Woman stories are found in multiple Indigenous American cultures, often told to young children or by young adults and preteens in the communities of the Oceti Sakowin, Ojibwe, Ponca, Omaha, Cherokee, Muscogee, Seminole, Choctaw, Otoe, Osage, Pawnee, and the Iroquois - and those are only the ones that have documented Deer Woman sightings.
In Ojibwe tradition, she can be banished through the use of chanting and tobacco. Others claim that the spell she casts can be broken if one notices her cloven hooves.
Other stories and traditions describe the sighting of Deer Woman as a sign of personal transformation or as a warning. Deer Woman is said to be fond of dancing and will sometimes join a communal dance unnoticed, leaving only when the drum beating ceases.”
