SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 24: SUSAN LA FLESCHE

Profile America — Saturday, November 24th.  Many pioneering men and women are being honored as National American Indian Heritage Month continues. One of them is Susan La Flesche, an Omaha Indian from Nebraska, who set her sights on becoming a doctor. Her dedication resulted in her attending the Women's Medical College of Pennsylvania. Not only did she graduate in 1889, but did so at the head of her class, becoming the first female American Indian physician. La Flesche returned home to Nebraska, where she married, raised a family, and built the first Indian hospital in the state. Among adult American Indians and Alaska Natives, 77 percent have a high school diploma. And 13 percent have earned at least a bachelor's degree in college.  Profile America is in its 16th year as a public service of the U.S. Census Bureau.
