The Bear Doctor Society is small initiatory group of Bear shamans based out of Seattle, one of many healing magical groups. Similar groups (in both name and function) exist throughout the NAN. The society keeps up with both modern medicine as well as traditional tribal magic to serve the Amerind community in the greater Salish area. Salish patients receive their treatment free of charge, as well as any patients who cannot pay. The shamans in this group are devoted to protecting life and see the requirements of Bear as moral obligations.
