Olive Oatman Day
Saturday, January 18 • 12:00–4:00 p.m.
In 1851, 14 year old Olive Oatman was kidnapped by a Yavapai tribe in Arizona. She was traded to a Mohave tribe and lived with them until she was ransomed by her brother and returned to white society. Known for the blue tattoo on her chin that she received when she was with the Mohaves, she lived in Phoenix, Oregon, for about 3 months before writing her memoir, getting married, and moving to Texas. Her story was national news and continues to draw interest today. Join the Phoenix Library to learn about Oatman’s life and fame.
