Summary Here East German celebrity Gojko Mitic stars his very first Indianer film, or East German Western, as the fearless chief Tokei-ihto, whose Dakota tribe is being driven from the land of their ancestors. Based on the carefully researched fiction of Liselotte Welskopf-Henrich, it became East Germany's answer to the West German fascination with author Karl May. This production began the most successful series of box office hits in the history of East German cinema. Although the Native Americans have been assured of their lands, adjacent to the Black Hills, by contract, the whites want to expel them. Meanwhile, gold has been discovered and the unscrupulous settler, Red Fox, demands that Mattotaupa, chief of the Dakota Bears Clan, reveal the location of gold deposits. Mattotaupa refuses and is stabbed to death by Red Fox in the presence of his son Tokei-ihto ... As in most East German Westerns, the Native Americans emerge victorious against the capitalist Americans.
