Storyline

Big Bear and Silver Fawn have been made man and wife by the good priest of the mission and their dwelling place became a dilapidated old house that modern civilization had neglected to tear down. The land had been used by their forefathers from time unknown so these two lived, loved and slept their days away, contented to dip no further into the mysteries of civilization than to abide in a wooden house. One day some men came in a big touring car and said, "get out of here. We do not want you around." They handed Big Bear a typewritten letter, "The law says this property is mine." "The Law. Who is he? I no know him. My forefathers say this land mine." But the law. So Big Bear and Little Silver Fawn mount their horses and turn their backs on civilization and the old shack is burned down. Civilization had taken their home and farm away from them but they still had the wild game to kill as in days of old. But the same man, John Randall, came along with the authority of the law back of him... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

A special plea for the down-trodden redman
30 April 2017 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

A story fabricated for the Edison company now in the West and to make a special plea for the down-trodden redman. Special pleas are often weak from the fact that they are apt to set forth what this does, a half- truth. The government takes mighty good care of many of its Indian wards. In this picture, an Indian and his squaw are brutally treated and driven almost to distraction (his house is burned down wantonly and his gun is apparently legally stolen); yet he returns good for evil, bringing the persecutor who has suffered as accident and is in danger from a burning forest to a safe place. The squaw dies from burns. Laura Sawyer plays the squaw remarkably well as does Benjamin Wilson her brave. Charles Sutton, Jessie McAlister, James Gordon and others have parts. It is very poorly photographed, except for one or two scenes. - The Moving Picture World, January 18, 1913
