Storyline

A regiment of cavalry surprises the Sioux and puts them to flight. Colonel Graham and others personally attend to the wants of the wounded, and the Colonel finds a wounded squaw in one of the tepees, with a little girl crouched in terror by her side. The Colonel sends for a canteen, gives the squaw water and promises to look after the child after the mother dies. The Colonel takes the child home, where she is raised. Fifteen years pass and Neehla, the Indian girl, is educated at Carlisle, where she purchases some beautiful Indian dresses. She returns to the Colonel's home and soon becomes the object of admiration to the Lieutenants Stark and Lee. Stark later proposes and is accepted. Old Chief Gray Eagle, of the Sioux warriors, jumps the reservation and commits outrages. Colonel Graham receives orders to ride against the Indians and to punish them. Neehla learns for the first time that Gray Eagle is her grandfather and blood begins to tell and her sympathies turn to her native race. ... Written by Moving Picture World synopsis

There are several very sure thrills
26 February 2017 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A soldier and Indian picture in two reels, with the interest centered in an Indian girl, captured as a baby and brought up in the fort as the colonel's ward, down to young womanhood she sees her grandfather, a warlike chief, brought, a captive, into the fort and is told who he is. She steals away from the fort with a message from her grandfather to the tribesmen that means the death of her white friends, for they were that, and the annihilation of the tribe. While the story, or to be more accurate, much in its situation doesn't seem strongly probable, there are several very sure thrills in it and many fine views, some of them artistic to a degree. The interest is sustained through both reels and it makes an excellent offering. - The Moving Picture World, November 2, 1912
