Storyline

A water company desires the Mojave Indians' right to a strip of land in Arizona. The big chief refuses to sign with the company's agent without the approval of his son, Brave Eagle, who is attending an Eastern college. The Indians trust Brave Eagle. He refuses to sign, and agents are sent to him to change his mind. Falling in this, they introduce a young woman to win his love and influence him to sign the paper. Her purpose accomplished, she spurns the Indian, and he sees he has been duped. In frenzy, Brave Eagle adopts the red man's way. He captures the adventuress and takes her to his tribe, where she is made to do bard work like a squaw. After a time Brave Eagle bids her return to her people, but in the meantime she has fallen in love with him and asks to be his wife, whereupon the Indian spurns her as she once spurned him.
