Kiowa sub-chief. Born about 1847 in what is today Kansas, he was called Kau-Tau-Bone. By 1875 he was serving as a U.S. Army Indian Scout. He was one of the first Kiowa to accept conversion and be baptized at Rainy Mountain Church on the Kiowa reservation in the 1880s. During 1903 flooding in Indian Territory (present day Oklahoma) Gotebo, who was well into his fifties, was honored for his courage when he swam swollen a river in order to rescue a man and his son. The town of Gotebo, Oklahoma is named for him. He died about age 80 at his home and was interred at Rainy Mountain Cemetery.
