Susan La Flesche Picotte was the first American Indian woman in the United States to receive a medical degree in the late 19th century.

She is widely acknowledged as one of the first Indigenous peoples to earn a medical degree. She campaigned for public health and for the formal, legal allotment of land to members of the Omaha tribe.

As a child, Susan La Flesche had watched a sick Indian woman die because the local white doctor would not give her care. She later credited this tragedy as her inspiration to train as a physician, so she could provide care for the people she lived with on the Omaha Reservation.
