Ne-Do-Ba Comment - - - Rain-in-the-Face would be a stage name and not an actual Wabanaki family name.

 

A tribe of Indians called Kickapoos pitched tents down by Tarr's (now John Durham House). They gave free entertainment every night and sold Indian medicine in the summer of 1888.

Ne-Do-Ba Comment - - - She is referring to the Kickapoo Indian Medicine Show. Although there is a western tribe of that name, this was actually a commercial outfit that traveled around selling medicine. Some members of the outfit were Native, but some just dressed up and pretended to be "Indians" to sell their goods. John Johnson traveled with them for a time.
