(A) He exemplifies the Lakota culture’s devotion to truth.
(B) He embodies the virtue of humility in Lakota society.
(C) He symbolizes the fate of Lakota warriors who fail at waktoglaka.
(D) He epitomizes the Lakota warrior who enhances his status by telling stories.
(E) He typifies the Lakota warrior who is overly concerned with appearances.
Answer: To show Crazy Horse’s cultural legacy, the text incorporates the virtue of humility in Lakota society, as shown in option B.
We can arrive at this answer because:
The text shows how Crazy Horse became a great Native American hero who fought for the defense of his tribe during the removal of Natives to reservations in 1876.
He was a great leader of the Lakota society and was very influenced by the customs and cultural values of that society.
An example of this can be seen in the concept of humility that Crazy Horse maintained both inside and outside his tribe. This concept of humility is one of the values most cherished by the Lakota people, being one of their main cultural characteristics.
