Susan LaFlesche Picotte (June 17, 1865 – September 18, 1915) was an Omaha Native American doctor and reformer in the late 19th century.  She is widely acknowledged as the first Native American to earn a medical degree.  She campaigned for public health and for the formal, legal allotment of land to members of the Omaha tribe.
