  • A renegade Indian kills a chief who has insulted him. The chief's brother swears vengeance and pursues the renegade, overtaking him just in time to rescue him from another tribe who are angry with him for stealing a horse.

  • A renegade Indian seeks admission into the tribe, and the chief in scorn offers him a squaw's dress, which means at the same time an insult and a denial of his request. The renegade for revenge slays the chief, who, through illness, is unable to defend himself. The renegade escapes and some of the tribe signal distress to the brother of the slain chief, who is out on a hunting trip. The brother, returning to the camp, swears over the body of the chief to bring the perpetrator of this crime back and to justice. On his way the renegade steals a horse, and for this is pursued by another tribe of redmen, who catch him just as the brother comes up. The chief's brother claims the culprit, and offers to fight for him. He wins and the renegade misconstruing his act, is profuse in his tanks for his rescue, but it is not long before he realizes why he has been rescued, for when taken back to the funeral pile of the chief, he pays the penalty.
