Native American melodrama with Norma Talmadge

In this Native American melodrama, Norma Talmadge plays a woman of mixed race who is forced into a shotgun wedding (mistakenly, it turns out) with a sympathetic white man, while discovering the truth about her cad of a lover. Copies exist of this film at the Library of Congress (35 mm - some deterioration), the George Eastman House (35 mm), the Cinema Museum in London (35 mm) and the UCLA Archives (16 mm and videocassette viewing copy). Thanks to Greta de Groat for the above information gleaned from her wonderful website devoted to Ms. Talmadge. This by the way was her 19th feature.
