Acourtia wrightii, common name brownfoot, is a plant. It is used by the Kayenta Navajo for difficult labor and as a postpartum medicine. The Hualapai also use it medicinally; in that they apply a poultice of the woolly "cotton" from the plant to open, bleeding wounds,  and the Pima use it as a styptic.
