The story of Olive Oatman. Her family was murdered with the exception of a brother that was left for dead at the wagon and a sister who was kidnapped in Arizona by (most likely Yavapai) a Native American tribe along with Olive when she was 13 yrs old. Olive was sold to another tribe and it is they who tattooed her chin and arms. Her sister died at ten years old, but Olive was rescued when word of a white girl reached an army outpost. Her freedom bought with blankets and other trade items.Diana Garcia
