The subject of this article is of a real-life person, place, group, company, product, or creative work that has been mentioned "in-universe" in a canon source.

A medicine man was a person who acted as a healer within a Native American tribe. Native American wizards sometimes became medicine men and attained positions of great respect within their tribes. However, No-Majs also served as medicine men, sometimes feigning magical powers to do so. These unscrupulous No-Maj medicine men spread malicious rumours about Animagi in an attempt to prevent themselves from being exposed.
