Indian tattoo on the face of a white woman, 1863. The photo shows Olive Oatman, whose parents were killed in front of her by Indians in 1859, when she was 14 years old. She and her younger sister were taken into slavery, then sold to another Mojave tribe. After five years of living in the tribe, the woman was able to return to American society, but most of what happened in the tribe with the Oatman sisters still remains unknown. For example, a tattoo on Olive's face indicates a good attitude of the Indians, while Oatman believed that she had been tattooed as a slave.
