2:00PM: “Medicine Woman” screening
3:00PM: Q & A with Co-Producer Princella RedCorn, Wehnona Stabler, and Narrator Joy Harjo.
What does it take to heal a people? That’s the question at the heart of MEDICINE WOMAN. Born on the Nebraska frontier in 1865, Susan La Flesche Picotte became America’s first Native doctor. She returned from medical school to a shattered world, and spent the rest of her life working to help her people become whole again. Like Doctor Susan, modern day medicine women from the Omaha, Lakota and Navajo tribes perform small miracles that the world rarely sees. How can they hope to mend the wounds of body and spirit that history has created? And what have they learned about new ways of healing that can help us all?”
