"THE son of an indian Chief, he loved a white girl- He makes a noble sacrifice, then-Can white and red blood mix?"
The Indian tribe of Chief Standing Rock (Tyrone Power Sr.) has signed a treaty protecting their fishing grounds. However, a cannery is violating the treaty using intimidation and violence. The tribe is divided on how to solve this problem. Standing Rock's son, Braveheart (Rod La Rocque), is sent to college to study law so he can protect the rights of his tribe too. Other tribesmen, led by the hot-tempered Ki-Yote, favor a less peaceful solution.
