Produced by legendary cattleman Colonel Charles Goodnight, this film presents a narrative of his relationship with the Kiowa tribe who inhabited the area in and around Palo Duro Canyon and the JA Ranch. The film documents scenes from bison hunts, daily life in the Kiowa camp and the JA Ranch, and rituals and customs of the tribe. Included is footage of the last buffalo hunt that Charles Goodnight held on the ranch and invited the Kiowa to attend.
