Dr. LaFlesche Picotte


In 1889, Susan LaFlesche Picotte became the first Native American female doctor in the United States. Throughout her life she worked to support the survival of the Omaha Tribe when they were struggling to maintain their rights and resist oppression from the U.S. government. Although she was a woman and was expected to stay in the home, she remained dedicated to being a strong public voice for her people.
