Lt. John Dunbar is dubbed a hero after he accidentally leads Union troops to a victory during the Civil War. He requests a position on the western frontier, but finds it deserted. He soon finds out he is not alone, but meets a wolf he dubs "Two-socks" and a curious Indian tribe. Dunbar quickly makes friends with the tribe, and discovers a white woman who was raised by the Indians. He gradually earns the respect of these native people, and sheds his white-man's ways.Written by

Fort Sedgwick at the time this movie was taking place (the US Civil War from April 12, 1861- May 9, 1865) was not called Fort Sedgwick; it was called "the Post at Julesburg Station". The post wasn't renamed to Fort Sedgwick until September 27, 1865, several months after the war had ended, for the late-Major General John Sedgwick. See more »
Some home video versions contain Costner's original four-hour European cut, with scenes cut from the U.S. version. A similar longer version, minus some violence and objectionable scenes, has been shown on network television" See more »
It's hard for me to believe this movie is not in the top 250 on IMBD all time list. Without question my favorite movie. We live in a strange world when Pulp Fiction ranks #18, and Dances with Wolves just misses the top 250. Maybe people thought the movie was too long. I thought it was too short if anything. I wish they would have gone on forever. What an incredible story. The way Costner continued to get closer and closer to the Indians way masterfuly done.
