Customs of the red men are clearly set forth
15 March 2016 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

In this Indian picture some of the customs of the red men are clearly set forth. A renegade seeks admission to a tribe and is offered a squaw's dress. No greater insult could be offered and he promptly kills the chief and makes his escape. The chief's brother goes after him to avenge the killing. The renegade has stolen a horse from, and has been captured by another tribe, but upon the chief's presentation of his claims the renegade is given up. He is profuse in his thanks for his rescue, but when they arrive at the dead chief's funeral pyre he soon understands why he was rescued, and pays the penalty with his life. - The Moving Picture World, July 29, 1911
