Whether or not Abe Spirits’s story is a legend is unimportant. It is a very interesting story and one that was actually more common than many people think. It is an interesting account of Native American Indians and white men. Relationships between these two people groups were not always hostile, and it is good to hear stories such as Abe’s for a reminder. The Indians were humans too, and some of them did care for the white men around them. Abe’s story is one that crosses racial divides and is applicable even today as our nation works to bridge the gap between other racial divides.
