An Englishman, John Morgan, lives 30 years as a Sioux named Man Called Horse. In 1874, gold is discovered in the Black Hills, on tribal land guaranteed to the Sioux in the Laramie Treaty of 1868. Settlers pour in and White provocateurs try to prompt the Sioux to break the treaty (so that all-out war with the US forces will result in the land no longer being under Sioux control). They murder and make it look like Indians were responsible. Man Called Horse helps maintain calm among the tribe, but when tragedy befalls him, it's left to his son Koda and Koda's lover, a Crow named Red Wing, to devise a strategy to keep the argonauts at bay and the Black Hills sacred.

Sam Peckinpah was originally scheduled to direct at the behest of star Richard Harris (both had previously worked together on 'Major Dundee'). Due to Peckinpah's unofficial blacklist after his erratic behavior on 'Convoy'; he was later replaced by John Hough. See more »
I really don't understand why people submit bad comments about movies. This movie, while not a true sequel of "A Man Called Horse", was an enjoyable movie in it's on right. Take it for what it is, a western and I think you will enjoy.
The few times that Richard Harris appeared in the movie, is a tribute to an aging star who wanted to finish the third, and last movie in "A Man Called Horse". While not able to be as much a part of the movie as he wanted to, he nevertheless was there.
I think that the movie should be judged on it's on merit rather than see it as a finish to a series. I enjoyed the movie and would like to see the whole series released on DVD.
