    Sanapia ~ Comanche Nation


    Sanapia, born Mary Poafpybitty (ca. 20 May 1895–23 January 1984) was a Comanche medicine woman and spiritual healer. She is believed to be the last of eagle doctors, a Comanche title referring to a person with eagle medicine for healing the sick. She was influenced by traditional Comanche medicine, incorporating elements of Christianity and Peyotism. Her spiritual healing was documented by David E. Jones after 1967, mainly in the early 1970s.
