The ceremony was followed by a meal and presentations from Joe Starita (author of the Dr. Susan biography “A Warrior of the People”) and some of her living descendants, including Dr. Russell Blackbird. The weekend honored Dr. Susan and her inspirational life, while also raised awareness for the hospital restoration project.
