Bio:

Ousted by my Tribe for my inconvenient belief in a code of ethical and spiritual living in these hard times. I am shame-banished for healing friend, foe, and stranger alike. I’m a shaman who believes the only way to restore the old ways into the various cultures of the land is to restore humanity’s dignity toward each other and nature. I have traveled a lot on my endless quest, and have made friends of various social status.

the comanche and the Coyote Confederacy at large has been allied with the confederacy – you definitely could have picked up something from battlefield medics, as well as applying your own traditional medicine
in fact you were part of a legendary scouting party/raiding outfit led by a Cherokee cheif named Helaku “Hell” McDaniels a long time ago

there is a conflict between the Old Ways movement and the leadership within the Coyote Confederation – Helaku does happen to be one of the cheifs convinced, but the cherokee have been a bit more accepting as a whole – the comanche, seduced by their political power internally and externally, do not think similarly.
