Storyline

The settler's child is stolen by Indians. Twelve years later White Bird, the stolen child, who has been raised by the Indians, is befriended by Baker, a young ranger. The Indian chief calls a council to plan an attack on the stockade. White Bird goes to warn Baker. Baker send White Bird to the stockade with the following note: "Indians meet in council this afternoon to plan an attack against us. Call in the settlers at once. Care for this girl until I return. I will impersonate a visiting chief and attend the council and learn their plan." Baker, disguised as an Indian visits the camp, but is discovered. Knocking down those who impede his way, he succeeds in reaching a nearby lake. He hides in the water breathing through a reed. The Indians think him drowned. The Indians gather their forces to attack the stockade. The settlers are safely within its walls, and Baker returns in time to help them make a successful defense. Baker's ultimate reward is the hand of White Bird. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

It has never appeared in a motion picture before

An Indian story, in which a white girl stolen when a child plays an important part. The young ranger sends her to the stockade to warn the settlers whom he directs to care for her while he attends the Indian council as a visiting chief. When discovered he hides in the lake, breathing through a reed. The Indians believe him drowned and go to the attack. He arrives in time to help in the defeat of the tribe and gets his reward in the white girl's hand. The feature of this story is the strategy displayed in hiding in the lake and breathing through a reed. That may have been done many times in actual practice, but it has never appeared in a motion picture before. - The Moving Picture World, September 30, 1911
