Wa-Tah-Wa-So, Indian Princess, daughter of Chief Nikola of the ancient Penobseot tribe, appears for the first time in recital in Chicago, the city of her adopted home. This event launches her career in a series of concerts and entertainments under this management, national in scope.
Wa-Tab-Wa-So delineates the pure Indian songs, folk-tales and legends only. Her recital is not a show though it is a distinct entertainment. She has the highest type of beauty and grace known to the blood of our aborigines, complemented by an education such as a modern American girl of refinement and culture could aspire to. She has enjoyed the friendship and association of men and women of distinction in social, governmental and literary life.
Wa-Tah-Wa-So wears the romantic garments and decorations of the Penobscots and has all the knowledge and understanding of the pathos, comedy, art and heart of the New England Indian tribes, the highest development of the red man of history and story.
