Although Griffith is best remembered for the racism of BIRTH OF A NATION, his pleas in his works were not intended primarily as statements of the superiority of races, but as pleas for people to be left alone to solve their own problems. In such works as BROKEN BLOSSOMS, INTOLERANCE and, yes, even BIRTH OF A NATION, he argues that people should be left alone to solve their own issues. Here, he makes the point that even when a member of a group violates its structure -- here, when an Indian kills a chief of his tribe -- that group should judge him and stand strong against outsiders -- the renegade steals a horse from another tribe and is rescued by his tribesman who brings him back home to be judged for his crime against his own tribe.

Visually, this is not one of Griffith's best movies from this period, which only illustrates how fast and how far he had brought his movie making in only three years. The compositions are beautiful, but not, for him, ground-breaking and the story is, as might be expected for a two-reeler, straightforward.
