Good Medicine for Our People. A Coloring Book about Indians and Health Careers.
The Indians into Medicine (INMED) program helps Indian students to attend college and earn degrees in health care fields. Developed by INMED, this coloring book for children conveys through pictures and picture captions the message that American Indians can become health professionals, and that health professionals are needed by the Indian people. Pictures portray medicine men and women; their relationship with plants and animals; their training; traditional healing and ceremonial practices; life before the White man; the White man's arrival accompanied by unknown sicknesses; the need for young people to enter health careers; and the work of nurses, doctors, and medical technologists.
