Loved by the Buffalo's sister, Thunder Heart Woman (Tonantzin Carmelo), is married off to a white trapper and his brothers Dog Star (Michael Spears) and Running Fox (Zahn McClarnon) begin families, but Loved by the Buffalo realizes that his destiny lies on a different path.

Thunder Heart Woman's trapper husband is killed by the Crow, her infant daughter is captured, and she is sold into slavery. Later, Jacob sees her being auctioned off at a trapper rendezvous and attempts to buy her in order to set her free. Fellow trapper Johnny Fox (Gary Busey) duels Jacob for the right to purchase her. Jacob is victorious in the duel, and soon agrees to return Thunder Heart Woman to her people. She gives him the wooden medicine wheel necklace as a token of her gratitude. When they return to the tribe, Jacob marries Thunder Heart Woman and begins to live as part of the Lakota tribe.

Jacob and Thunder Heart Woman had a son, Abraham High Wolf, second son Jacob Junior High Cloud & daughter Margaret Light Shines Wheeler.
