What does it take to heal a people? That's the question at the heart of this film, which weaves together the lives of Native healers of today with that of the first Native American doctor.

How can they hope to mend the wounds of body and spirit that history has created? And what have they learned about new ways of healing that can help us all? Actress Irene Bedard is the voice of Doctor Susan. Poet and musician Joy Harjo narrates.
