The pictures open in the camp of Chief Three Bears' tribe, near McDermott, in Northwestern Montana. Chief Three Bears is the last of the great war chiefs of the Blackfeet. Today, at the age of eighty-six, he is a good citizen of the United States. Chief Three Bears opens the picture by saying, in the picturesque sign language of the Northwestern Indian, that his tribe intends to break camp and to move to a new location. The chief is followed by Lazy Boy, Judge Wolf Plume, Mrs. Dog Ears and Medicine Owl, the medicine man, each of whom has something to say in this peculiar language. While the men ride ahead to the new site, the squaws remain to accomplish all the actual work of moving the equipment. Mrs. Dog Ears, an old lady of some eighty-two summers, exhibits an extraordinary degree of activity.

Will please the average spectator a good deal
6 January 2018 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

A very able and interesting offering, showing how the remnant of the once powerful tribe of Blackfeet Indians live on their reservation in northwestern Montana. Chief Three Bears talks in sign language to the camera and then Mrs. Dog Ears also hands out a speech which gets over in fine shape. An excellent picture, which will please the average spectator a good deal. The comedy on the same reel is such as can be shown at any time even to a Sunday school. - The Moving Picture World, November 22, 1913
