Olive Oatman.

"Olive Oatman (1837-1903) was a woman from Illinois who was famously abducted by a Native American tribe (likely the Yavapai people), then sold to another (the Mohave people). She ultimately regained her freedom five years later. The story resonated in the media, partly owing to the prominent blue tattooing of Oatman's face by her captors."
This is worth the short read, pretty interesting- quote and more of the story can be found here
I have yet to go to Oatman, AZ but I do know that wild donkeys roam around the town and Clark Gable and Carole Lombard honeymooned there
