By all accounts she was a terrific athlete and sportswoman who possessed masterful horsemanship skills. Go-won-go gained fame across the country while performing in the western shows of Buffalo Bill Cody and Wild Bill Hickok. In addition, Go-Won-Go was also one of the first Native American actresses to perform on the American stage.
