Prospector John Morton (Robert Drouet) marries Panca, an Indian girl (Linda Arvidson), just so he can find the secret of a rich gold mine. Once he has learned it, he deserts her. She dies in childbirth and requests that her daughter be educated "white man fashion." The girl, Wanga (also played by Arvidson) falls in love with engineer Dick Travers (Charles Perley), who is working for Morton, who is trying to lay a railroad track on Indian property so he can get possession of the mine. Joe Iron Horn (Alfred Holingsworth), an Indian who loves Wanga, reveals her half-breed roots to her white friends and Dick turns on her. She returns to her Native American village and then campaigns to uphold their rights. She keeps Morton from interfering by threatening to reveal that she is his daughter. She snubs Dick for his behavior, but then saves his life when Joe Iron Horn tries to leave him in the middle of a stampede. Dick learns to be proud of Wanga's Indian heritage and they are married. This picture may seem racist and politically incorrect today, but it was fairly liberal for the mid-1910s.
