Storyline

In 1680, owing to the tyrannical rule of the Spaniards, the Pueblo Indians, under the leadership of Pope, chief of the San Juan tribe, resolved to rebel and drive their oppressors out of New Spain (New Mexico). Jaca, one of the chiefs consorting with Pope, secretly sympathized with the Spaniards and sent his daughter, Maria, a converted squaw, to warn the governor, Otermin, at Santa Fe, of the proposed revolt. Captain Gomez was sent by Governor Otermin on a reconnaissance with a small troop of soldiers, and was driven back by the hostile Indians. Chief Pope offered Governor Otermin his choice of peace or war by sending him two crosses, one black and one white; the choice of the white cross to mean that the Spaniards would be allowed to march out of the country without being molested; the choice of the black cross to indicate war.

Not exciting and will appeal to historians
20 April 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

An historical picture, not a story or drama. It shows the incident as it was originally enacted by Spaniard and Indian in the years 1680 and 1692, and under the same skies and amid the same hills and mesquite bushes. It is very instructive, but not exciting and will appeal to historians. We give the cast of characters: Governor Don Antonio de Otermin is Col. C. Price; Capt. Gomez is Carlyle Blackwell; Padre Duran is Arthur Travers; Pope is Lorenzo, a San Juan Indian: Jaca is Knute Rahmn; Maria, his daughter, is Mona Knoll, and Juan is Mae Marsh. All these are players in the first episode. In the second we see Gov. Vargas played by Carlyle Blackwell, Padre Corvero by W. H. West, Capt. Roque by George Armijo, Maria by Mona Knoll, Juan by Mae Marsh and Domingo by Emilio, a San Juan Indian. A commendable offering. - The Moving Picture World, January 4, 1913
