Naomi Wheeler is the younger, female cousin to Jacob Wheeler. Naomi and her two sisters, Leah and Rachel, have been unlucky in finding love and are lured by the excitement occurring out west. Naomi loses both of her sisters on the trek to California; Leah falls off the wagon she is riding across a river and drowns, and Rachel is hit by a wagon that is falling downhill, which causes a severe compound fraction that later kills her. When Cholera outbreaks within the trek, Jacob and Naomi's in-law family members are left under quarantine and they are separated from the main group. Unfortunately, everyone who wasn't left under quarantine is killed by Cheyenne warriors the next morning, except Naomi, who is taken prisoner. After being renamed Five Horses, as her new name explains what was paid for her, she marries a Cheyenne chief named Prairie Fire, and she gives birth to a son named One Horn Bull.

This is all that is explained about Naomi Wheeler within the actual episodes aired and released on home video. There are, however, pictures and information about Naomi that isn't seen within the series that is included inside Into The West: A Celebration of the Epic Series, a 96 page book about the series. This book was only available with a 6-disc set of the film that was sent to the Emmy Awards to consider the show for nominations. Inside this book, it is said that Naomi is captured by Whites when the Cheyenne camp is attacked, but she manages to escape, presumably back to the camp. Nothing else is said about the character.
