Poster consists of a full color image with black text on a white background. The image depicts a North American Indian man in traditional dress standing with his arms outstretched above his head with feathers in one hand and a plant in the other hand with a giant eagle behind him holding the Indian, the two physicians (one male and one female) holding a baby in a cradleboard beneath him, and the shield with "I.H.S." a caduceus and feathers at the base within its wings. The text under the image includes an explanation of the symbolism of the image, contact information for the IHS and "The Circle of Care / Enter the Circle of Care / Join the Indian Health Service." At the bottom center is the circular logo depicting a medical caduceus with a feather behind it with the text "Indian Health Service 1955" around it. |
