Baá Hawassiio & Ènomóhtåhéseh:
Healthcare on the Crow & Northern Cheyenne Reservations
June 17 – December 30, 2021
Baá Hawassiio & Ènomóhtåhéseh: Healthcare on the Crow & Northern Cheyenne Reservations explores the history of healthcare and healing on the Crow and Northern Cheyenne reservations. Visitors will learn how native peoples demanded better conditions and blended traditional beliefs with Western medical practices in the face of legal action and apathetic government workers. Exhibit highlights include a discussion of healthcare as assimilation practice, the effects of poor sanitation on reservation health, and the stories of two “healthcare heroes”: Susie Walking Bear Yellowtail, RN, and Cheyenne Tribal Judge, Marie Sanchez.
