Storyline

Tohpay and his braves are fighting to take back the land from the Army and settlers. He has control over his people with a fire breathing idol and the help of John Garth to train his braves in how to fight using modern Army methods and weapons. In return Garth wants the hand of Tohpay's daughter Lohray in marriage. Tohpay's men have been attacking Army forts and capturing their weapons including cannons and Gatling guns. Parmalee sends the four Rangers after Tohpay in the Taos area where the Sheriff is under the control of Garth. The Rangers are captured by Tohpay but his reluctant daughter Lohray tries to help them. The men rely on some of Erik's treachery to turn the tide. Written by Anonymous

Military tactics
11 December 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

I remember that in the film Fort Apache John Wayne said that Cochise led some of the finest light cavalry in the world. This episode of Laredo has Myron Healey teaching some Indians some good military tactics for his own venal purposes of course. A fringe benefit would be Indian princess Diane Rotay who chief Abraham Sofaer bargained away for a couple of cannons, a Gatling gun and all that goes with it.

One of the weaker Laredo episodes. Some elements of Gunga Din thrown into the mix. And the same bit with the idol breathing fire was used in Star Trek prime with variations on a few episodes.

This one is not up to the standards of the show.
