Deluvina Maxwell was born in Canyon de Chelly around 1847. She was pure Navajo. When she was still a child, around 9 or 10 years of age, Apaches raided her familys home and took her as a slave. A unknown time later, she was traded for ten horses by the Apaches to Lucien Maxwell at Cimarron. Lucien gave Deluvina his last name and treated her very well. She became happy in her new life where she lived in Fort Sumner. She became good friends with Lucien's wife, and with his two children, Pete and Paulita. When Lucien died, Deluvina stayed at Fort Sumner with the family. When she met Billy the Kid, she began to 'worship' him. And by worship, I mean WORSHIP ! She loved him and would do anything for him. Billy only thought of her as a friend, but she may have wanted to be more than that. After Billy's alleged death, she reportedly visited his grave. However, she may have been visiting it for Tom O'Folliard and/or Charlie Bowdre, both of whom were friends of hers. Deluvina died in Albuquerque on November 27, 1927.
