Chief of Scouts Ed Bannon narrowly avoids an Apache ambush while working with the cavalry stationed at Fort Clark, Texas. The US Army is trying to talk peace with the Apaches and move them to reservations in Florida, and they take Bannon's efforts as detrimental to their new policies, so they fire him. When the Apache chief's son Torinada returns from an Eastern education, Bannon becomes highly suspicious of his motives based run-ins with Torinada in the past. Bannon continues shadowing the proceedings to the chagrin of both the US Army and the Apache warrior.Written by

There actually was a Ghost Dance movement, it was a religious revival of Native Americans in 1890, but it did not involve Apaches, who inhabited mainly the Southwest (Texas, Arizona, New Mexico, etc.). It was popular among the Lakota (Sioux) of the Northern Plains. See more »
I've seen a lot of westerns but this film is probably the most racist piece of trash ever made. The action sequences are ok but the real problem with it is absolutely everybody is characterized to be pure evil, with the exception of Brian Keith who just appears to be stupid. Every Indian acts like a crazy, murderous savage and the hero (?), Heston (Over acting in the extreme) is the nastiest character in any western film history I've ever seen.
