Storyline

On a visit to the country, Raleigh makes the acquaintance of a young Indian boy and convinces the Indian family to let him take the boy back with him to the city for a visit. Raleigh's wife and family are so pleased with "Loe" that they send a basket of clothes to Loe's family. The family mourn the absence of their papoose, and decide to go to the city after him. Dressing in the clothing as best they can, they start for Raleigh's. Needless to say, consternation and embarrassment reigned supreme in the Raleigh household upon the arrival of the comically dressed Indians. Making the best of it, however, the Raleighs received them, and bade them make themselves at home. Loe's father needed no second invitation, and finding a bottle of "Devil water," he proceeded to get beautifully intoxicated.

Sometimes a bit forced, but nearly always funny
12 May 2016 | by (Chicago) – See all my reviews

The Selig Company, some weeks ago, released a picture telling a tragic story of a little Indian lad whom a white man had adopted. This picture gives the comic possibilities in the same situation. The whole Indian family, brave, squaw, and older son, comes on a visit to "Little Injin" and the people who had taken him to their home. Of course, they were not accustomed to front-door bells, table etiquette, nor to sleeping in a bed. Neither was "big Injin" accustomed to seeing the decanter on the sideboard and not making free use of it. Before the family gets rid of "Little Injin" and his very inconvenient relatives, there are "doings," sometimes a bit forced, but nearly always funny. The audience certainly laughed and seemed to enjoy the picture. - The Moving Picture World, November 4, 1911
