Gerry Nanapush’s wife. When Dot is first introduced, she is six months pregnant with Gerry’s baby. She is one of the only women who works at a local construction site, along with Albertine, whom Dot later befriends. Dot is a kind but no nonsense woman who doesn’t tolerate any other women looking at Gerry, and she is another example of female strength in Love Medicine. Presumably, when Gerry escapes prison near the end of the novel and runs to Canada, he is going to be with Dot and their daughter.
