106 Group is thrilled to share that we have been chosen to design a permanent exhibition dedicated to the life and work of Dr. Susan La Flesche Picotte, a member of the Omaha Tribe. Dr. Susan was the first Native American doctor. Born shortly after the Civil War, she dedicated her life to public health and land rights for her Omaha people. The exhibits will be incorporated into the historic 1913 Memorial Hospital building in Walthill, Nebraska. The Dr. Susan La Flesche Picotte Center is currently being restored to accommodate a mental and behavioral health office, youth programming, historical museum, and cultural and educational spaces.
