Storyline

A dance at Fort Boonesborough is interrupted by Flathead Joseph, a halfbreed slave trader. He has a young Indian girl with him whom he claims is a Cherokee Princess...and a white girl. Her name is Tekawitha McLeod and she is the daughter of the Cherokee Chief Menewa. When Daniel confronts Menewa about this he admits she is white and taken from a raiding party but he wants her back. Daniel refuses when he realizes he knew her family. The Indians are determined to fight to get her back and the settlers of Boonesborough are just as determined to fight to keep her.

DANIEL BOONE – Tekawitha McLeod – 1964

This is the second episode of the long running 1964-70 series about the life of American frontiersman and explorer, Daniel Boone. The lead is played by Fess Parker. Also in the mix are Albert Salmi, Ed Ames, Patricia Blair, Veronica Cartwright and Darby Hinton.

The local inhabitants of Fort Boonesborough, are having a shindig with dancing and a few drops of rum being passed around. The festivities are interrupted by a slave trader. The man, Chris Alcaide, has a person he would like to trade for some gunpowder and a bottle of rum. It is a young woman, Lynn Loring. Alcaide had grabbed Loring from a tribe of Shawnee Indians.

The deal here is that Loring is a white girl, who had been captured 15 years before on a raid into the settlements. The deal is made and Alcaide sent on his way. Needless to say the young woman is not happy with this arrangement. She would rather be back with her "adopted' family, the Shawnee.

Things quickly come to a head when the Shawnee come a calling looking for the girl. They catch Alcaide and soon relieve him of his scalp. They then pay a call on the fort demanding the return of Loring. Both sides arm up and it looks like plenty of blood will be spilt. Loring however convinces both sides that it is up to her where she wishes to live.

Calmer heads soon prevail and the matter is talked out. Loring decides to stay with the Shawnee, but promises to visit the fort upon occasion. She will also do what she can to maintain the peace.
