Storyline

Swift Eagle, a Sioux brave, meets Bright Feather, Cheyenne maid, and their love is mutual. The Cheyennes find the hostile warrior's footprints and give chase, but Swift Eagle eludes them. Daringly he returns at night to meet Bright Feather. White Crow, a Cheyenne, comes upon the scene and Swift Eagle conceals himself. The Cheyenne forces his attentions upon Bright Feather, and the Sioux flies to the assistance of his lady love. The camp is aroused and Swift Eagle is captured and condemned to be burned at the stake. Bright Feather slips away, jumps on a horse and gallops madly to the Sioux camp where she tells the plight of Swift Eagle. A war party hastens back and swoops down on the Cheyenne camp as the flames are mounting toward the tightly bound Swift Eagle. He is rescued and in the battle that ensues the Cheyennes are defeated, and the lovers are joined in marriage. Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

The battle scene is so plainly laid out, so as to show all the smoke
5 February 2016 | by See all my reviews

Swift Eagle is a Sioux of that village of tepees we have become acquainted with of late in Bison stories and in the first scene Bright Feather, a Cheyenne maiden, helps him to escape from the Cheyenne village. He, according to this story, is romantic (Parkman said that no Indian ever was) and to protect Bright Feather from the unwelcome attentions of one of her own tribe he puts himself again in peril. It is Bright Feather who then rides to the Sioux village and brings help and she and Swift Eagle are married. The battle scene between the men of the two tribes is so plainly laid out, so as to show all the smoke, that it is lacking in interest even. - The Moving Picture World, June 10, 1911
