Olive Oatman’s parents were killed in 1859 when she was only 14 years old. She herself was kidnapped by Indians and then sold into the slavery of the Mohave. After 5 years spent in the tribe, the young woman managed to return to American society. Perhaps the Mohave treated Olive not as a slave but as an equal because they made her tattoos they themselves wore.
