While riding along the plains, Arrowhead comes across a cabin whose inhabitants have been slaughtered. Inspecting closer he finds that they have been scalped, but examining the bodies he finds evidence that it was done by a white man in order to frame Native Americans. Suddenly, Eagle begins to detect another horse nearby and Arrowhead suspects that the rider is the real killer and rides after their trail seeking to clear the name of his people. Along the way he comes across a posse who accuses him of killing the people in the cabin. Arrowhead tries to flee by a shot hired creases his brow, causing him to black out. Arrowhead comes to with a noose around his neck and a a lynch mob around him read to string him up.

However, not everyone gathered is looking to see Arrowhead hung for the crimes he's been accused of. In the crowd is his friend Andy Crockett and his employer who both plead to the rest of the mob to listen to reason and give Arrowhead a fair trail. However, nobody is willing to listen, but when his would-be executioner slackens the rope around his neck, Arrowhead orders Eagle to run allowing him to escape. Arrowhead manages to get away but he begins to black out from his wounds again as Eagle rides on. Along the way the unconscious is found by a Pawnee war party who brings him back to their village to get medical attention. Arrowhead comes to in the tent of his uncle with Doe Eyes caring for him. Suddenly, Running Wolf enters the tent and tells Arrowhead that he will be tortured for killing his father[1]. Arrowhead instead challenges Running Wolf to a battle to the death, and Running Wolf is forced to comply as per their tribes laws.

Combating on horseback, Arrowhead manages to knock Running Wolf off his horse and subdues him. However, instead of delivering a killing blow, Arrowhead instead tells Running Wolf that he will slay him the next time he sees him and leaves to clear his name for the murders that have been committed. Remembering that the hoof prints of the killers horse had a crooked foot with a quarter crack on the hoof, Arrowhead rides to the nearby white settlement and checks the stables and finds the matching horse. Hearing someone coming, Arrowhead hides and overhears Andy Crockett and his employer talking about his innocence. Seeing Andy's employer going toward the killers horse and his assurance to Andy that Arrowhead is innocent convinces to Pawnee renegade that this man is the real killer. Arrowhead slays him and Andy allows him to leave, assuring the warrior that he will find the evidence that will clear Arrowhead's name.

Synopsis for "Arrowhead"

While riding across the plains, Arrowhead is attacked by a Blackfoot war party who kills his pack horse and steals his supplies, but the Pawnee warrior manages to escape with his life, but vows to get vengeance for the attack. As he rides he comes across a dead Pawnee woman who Arrowhead recognizes as a woman who married a white trader, a little further down he finds the trader dead as well, and evidence that the Blackfoot warriors he encountered there the cause of the slaughter. Suddenly he is confronted by US Army soldiers who accuse him of slaying and Arrowhead is taken prisoner and taken to the commanding officer Colonel Brace. Brace considers the slaying of the Pawnee woman of no importance but believes that Arrowhead should be executed for the murder of the white trader. Hearing the Colonel so casually dismiss the Native American woman angers Arrowhead.

However before they can execute Arrowhead, he is saved once again by the timely intervention of his friend Andy Crockett who has been acting as a scout for these soldiers. He explains to them that Arrowhead is a Pawnee and that the killers were really Blackfoot. Hearing how Arrowhead hates the Blackfeet, the Colonel offers him a reward if he leads them to the Blackfoot army. Approaching the Blackfoot tribe at night, Arrowhead and Andy scout ahead to check things out. Arrowhead finds none of the warriors, only the elderly, women and children of the tribe. When he reports back and tell Colonel Brace, Brace doesn't care and orders his men to go in and slaughter the entire village. When Arrowhead relents, the Colonel strikes him. Andy strikes down the Colonel and helps Arrowhead escape.

Furious at this affront and the fact that Brace intends to slaughter innocent Blackfeet, Arrowhead tracks down the Blackfoot warriors and tells them what he knows. He then leads them back to the Blackfoot village where they head off the army soldiers before they can attack. Colonel Brace is slain by an arrow shot by Arrowhead. With their leader dead, the other soldiers inform Arrowhead that they did not agree with his racist ideals and thank him for killing their commanding officer so they did not have to carry out his orders. With his mission complete, Arrowhead rides off once again.
