Oceola, an Indian maiden, has been annoyed by the attentions of Black Hawk, a renegade, who makes his home with the tribe. One day Black Hawk forces her to listen to his drunken wooing, but is stopped by Tom Hopkins, a cowboy, who hears her cry and goes to her assistance. Tom beats the renegade and receives the Indian girl's heartfelt thanks. Tom's manly bearing and good looks have made an impression upon the little Indian maid, and she sets to work upon an elaborate tobacco pouch which she intends to give him as a present. One day, the bag being complete, she goes to present it, but is followed by Black Hawk. Oceola finds him talking to Rose, his employer's daughter, to whom he is engaged. The Indian girl presents her offering. Tom, who has no idea of the furor he has started in the Indian girl's heart, is rather surprised, but accepts the gift carelessly, and when Rose expresses her admiration for it, does not hesitate to give it to her. The two then depart, leaving Oceola speechless with mortification that the gift should have been so thanklessly received. As she returns home she meets Black Hawk, who has witnessed the scene. He is eager for revenge upon Tom for the beating he had given him and be plays upon the Indian girl's anger. Oceola finally agrees to aid him in a scheme in which he proposes to abduct Rose. Rose is caught, brought to the Indian village and placed in the Chief's tent in the care of Oceola. Rose pleads with the Indian girl and finally, repentant of her hasty action and filled with pity for the white girl, Oceola agrees to aid her to escape. Taking a ring from Rose, she bribes one of the tribesmen to take news of Rose's capture to her father. Rose's father with Tom and a bunch of cowboys attack the village and rescue the captured girl. In the mêlée Oceola, while endeavoring to help Rose escape to a place where she will be safe from the firing, is shot and dies. Written By Moving Picture World synopsis  Less
