Synopsis for "Arrowhead"

In the great western plains lived a tribe of Pawnee that were living in peace, they had food, water, game to hunt. The braves of the tribe honed their skills, the best of them was Arrowhead, the son of chief Bear-That-Walks, the people saw him as the rightful successor of the tribe, however he cannot prove his worthiness without going on the War Trail. There is tension in the tribe by way of the medicine man Snake Fang, who does not like how Arrowhead out performs his son Running Wolf. Arrowhead also seeks the heart of Doe Eyes, whom Running Wolf also seeks to win. Arrowhead that they have no reason to quarrel over it now as they still have yet to prove they are men in war.

So life went on, and Arrowhead honed his hunting and survival skills as the days marched on. However, one day things started to change: When out hunting for buffalo Bear-That-Walks and Arrowhead could not find any buffalo in the fields. Seeing vultures out in the sky, they go and investigate and find that a herd of buffalo had been slaughtered by white hunters who took only the tongues, livers, and humps of the buffalo and left the rest of the carcasses to rot. Having never seen a white man before, Arrowhead learns from his father that there are some good and some bad, but they are wasteful people who do not use all of the animals that they kill like their people do.

As summer was coming to an end, Arrowhead went into a cave on a medicine test, not eating or drinking for days until he had a medicine dream to determine his fate. On the fifth night he had a dream of killing a white hunter with an arrow. Troubled by the dream, Arrowhead went out into the wild to find something to eat and crossed paths with a bear. The two battled savagely, and while Arrowhead managed to kill the bear, he was gravely wounded. He was found by a white trapper who brought Arrowhead back to his village in the hopes that he could establish trade with the tribe. After the trader went back to Stutters Fort, Arrowhead was looked after by the local medicine men and after several weeks fully recovered. He watches as some men take Sliding Otter out to learn the ways of the hunt. However when days pass and they do not return, Arrowhead decides to go out searching for them, but is warned by his people that the Crow are on their raiding seasons.

Arrowhead finds his people, all killed by guns and he suspects that white men are responsible for the killing. He tracks the killers trail back to along the trail to Fort Stutters, clashing with Crow warriors along the way. Arriving at the fort, the soldiers there mistake Arrowhead for a Crow brave and apprehend him. They ignore his attempts to explain that he is a Pawnee, telling the brave warrior that all Native Americans are all the same. Arrowhead is tossed in jail to be hung in the morning. However that night, the trader who saved his life earlier comes to his cell and ties ropes to his bars and has them pulled off, as he knows that Arrowhead is innocent. As they escape, Arrowhead kills a soldier. As he and the trader rides off, he formally introduces himself as Andy Crockett and tells Arrowhead that for killing the soldier he'll become an outlaw to the white men and hunted down until he is captured.

With conflicting emotions of the white man, Arrowhead decides to head back to his tribe to seek guidance. When he arrives he finds his people getting drunk off liquor given to them by a white trader. Since his father's murder, Snake Fang has taken over the tribe. Arrowhead overhears that the white trader and Snake Fang conspired to murder Bear-That-Walks so that Snake Fang could trade the tribes gold. Furious, Arrowhead slays Snake Fang and the trader. His people not knowing why he becomes a renegade among his people and he and Andy Crockett flee the scene and part company. Alone and hunted by both white man and his people, Arrowhead vows the destruction of all white men, those he holds responsible for the tragic events that have changed his entire life.

Synopsis for "Arrowhead"

Arrowhead rides his horse Eagle to a stream that he knows has fresh water. However when he arrives he sees that a white man has since built a cabin there. Angry at this invasion, Arrowhead prepares to slay the man as he works outside, but stops himself when he sees that he has a wife and child. These mixed emotions confuse him. He begins to ride away when suddenly he hears fighting happening back at the cabin. He rushes back and sees that the people in the cabin are being attacked by Blackfoot warriors, sworn enemies of the Pawnee. Arrowhead comes to their defense, fighting off the Blackfoot but taking an arrow to the chest in the process.

The family take Arrowhead in and the owner of the cabin removes the arrow from Arrowhead's chest. With soldiers coming, Arrowhead asks for a hiding place and the people hide him in the attic of the house. The soldiers explain that they are out looking for Arrowhead when they saw the Blackfoot attack their home, but are glad to see that they were able to handle it on their own. However, the scout notices that there is blood dripping from the ceiling. The man of the house tells them that he has a skinned buffalo upstairs drying out and this satisfies them and they leave, although the scout is still suspicious.

When they are gone, Arrowhead comes down from the attic and asks why they did not turn him over to the Army. They tell him that it's because he came to their aid when he didn't have to and they finish patching up his wound. However when a soldier and one of the scouts come back because they have had second thoughts about the blood, they go up into the attic. Arrowhead gets the jump on them and slays his would be captors.

Paying his leave, Arrowhead reminds the cabin own that he is against all white men, including him, and that he might come back as an enemy. The man who owns the cabin assures Arrowhead that if the time comes he can defend himself and his family. However, as Arrowhead rides off he considers that at least there he will always be accepted as a friend.
