Waswehi: "Doctor," lit. "One Who Heals" (Ioway)

An illustration for my book "The Indians of Iowa" (University of Iowa Press, 2009). It depicts a Medicine Woman digging for medicinal plants deep in the woods at night, with the waxing-full-waning moon above. The tracks indicate she is Black Bear Clan. Bear knows the roots that heal.
