Medicine Woman

She was America’s first Native doctor, breaking barriers of race and gender to heal her traumatized people. A century later, Native women from many tribes follow in the footsteps of Dr. Susan La Flesche Picotte. How can they hope to mend wounds of body and spirit that history has created? What have they learned about new ways of healing that can help us all? Medicine Woman documents their stories.

Fascinating. Entertaining.

Yours.
