John Healy and Charles Bigelow brought a band of "full-blooded Kickapoo Indians" (Sioux, Pawnee, Mohawk, Iroquois and Blackhawk) to the Fryeburg Fair ca. 1900 to put on a medicine show to sell Kickapoo Indian Remedies. Their remedies were considered "authentic" because they used herbs and not doctored up alcohol as some companies did.
