Synopsis:
When a group of grave-robbers tangle with a band of Kiowa, a passing column of U.S. Cavalry kill all but one of the Kiowa, whom they assume are the agressors in the fight. The surviving Kiowa, who is called Ke-Woh-No-Tay, is actually the son of Matt Savage, who was kidnapped as an infant. He is re-united with his dying father, but rejects his white heritage and is jailed. He escapes prison and tracks down the grave-robbers, killing all but one, who clears him of wrong-doing in the original conflict.
