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 Salish-Shidhe Council. 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.
Dr. Jaqueline Diamonds, a female bear shaman and member of the «Bear Doctor Society» wrote the chapter "The Path of Bear" on the subject of magical healing for the shadow file "Augmentation", which was put together by the renown street doc "Butch" in 2071.
