Synopsis
Two men sheltering at a campsite shoot their white host and a native woman for being married. Next morning, an eagle flying in the red sunrise leads Grey Bear to discover the couple's baby. Believing the Great Spirit has guided him, he raises the boy as his son. When Grey Bear reveals Red Eagle's heritage to him, the young man wants to stay with his tribe. The medicine many prophesies bloody conflict between white and red men. Grey Bear urges Red Eagle to accept his father's inheritance and gives him an amulet to allow Sioux peoples to recognise him as a brother.
