An epic tale of two figures, white man and Native American, during the American colonization of the West. Jacob leaves his dull life behind, while Loved By the Buffalo faces his destiny to try to fight a prophecy that his people will be wiped out by the settlers. Jacob marries Buffalo's sister Thunder Heart, uniting the two families while around them relations between the two races crumble.
Graham Greene (born June 22, 1952) on a reserve in Brantford, Ontario, this Oneida Indian never thought ...
Conquering Bear (Graham Greene) is a cheif.
When a cow escapes from a passing Mormon wagon train and rampages through the village, causing considerable damage. The villagers try to give the cow back to the settlers, but they become frightened at the sight of the Indians and run away. The tribe decides to keep the cow as compensation for the damage and butcher it. Soldiers soon come, demanding that the cow be returned and the "thief" be handed over. Conquering Bear tries to explain the situation to the soldiers but his efforts are thwarted by a drunken scout who mistranslates the negotiations. The soldiers then open fire on the village and the warriors fight back. Many are killed on both sides, including Conquering Bear. (This event is based on the August 1854 Grattan massacre.)
