Egg Tempera

 

Suzette

Dr. Susan LaFlesche Picotte
egg tempera on masonite , 10"x9.5", private collection

Born in 1865, Susan was a member of the prominent Omaha family, the LaFlesches, whose symbol was the unstrung bow. She became the first Native American woman to earn a western medical degree, and she saved countless lives on her reservation. She was a tireless advocate for her tribe and is the person who instigated putting drinking fountains in public schools.
