Susan La Flesche Picotte Google doodle pays homage to 1st American Indian to earn her medical degree

Today’s Google doodle honors Dr. Susan La Flesch Picotte on what would have been her 152nd birthday.

Born on this date on the Omaha reservation in Nebraska in 1865, Picotte was encouraged by her father “to be somebody in the world.” According to Google, she did just that, leaving the reservation to attend the Women’s Medical College of Pennsylvania.
