Did you know that the first Native American woman doctor was an Omaha Indian from Nebraska? Dr. Susan LaFlesche Picotte (1865-1915) was the daughter of the famous Omaha Chief Iron Eye. Schooled on the East coast, "Dr. Susan" returned to Nebraska, struggled to provide medical care for her people and won the respect of the Indians and non-Indians whose lives she touched.
