He is successful with Cochise, the Apache leader, but Cochise is unable to get the Comanches to agree. The Apaches then turn back a raid by the Comanches.

Although the film is set in 1853, the Apaches are shown firing repeating rifles that weren't introduced until 1894. See more »
Consuelo de Cordova:
Cochise, I'm sorry.
You know about Terua?
Consuelo de Cordova:
You must never be sorry. People who are no longer with us have gone to another life - one that is much richer than ours - where there is no sickness, pain, death or sorrow. We wish them well, and then never think about it again. I will start from the beginning, now, as if Terua never existed.

The Gadsden Purchase of Southern Arizona is the setting for this underrated western that has fine action, good photography and a nice music score. The plot involves the U.S. Government's attempt to forge a peace treaty between ancient enemies, the Apaches and Mexicans, the latter of whom the American troops are duty-bound to protect from Cochise's raiders. Indian-hating Mexicans and trouble-making Americans stand in the way of peace and inflame hostilities on both sides of the border. The Comanches, at war with both the Americans and the Mexicans, hope to enlist Cochise and his Apaches as allies in their war of extinction against their enemies. Robert Stack is the best-known name among a good cast of players who were veterans of many western films. John Hodiak is Cochise, and his mannered, formal bearing as the Apache chief is better than might be expected.
