Directed by the prolific Harry L. Fraser, Texas Pioneers features laconic silent screen cowboy Bill Cody as a cavalry captain who is court martialed and removed from service after a disagreement with his commanding officer (John Elliott). It is all a ruse, of course, concocted so that Cody may infiltrate the gang that is providing the Indians with weapons. Aided by his Native American "blood brother" Little Eagle (Iron Eyes Cody) and Andy Thomas (Andy Shuford), the hero-worshipping son of his commanding officer, Cody successfully tracks down the leader of the gang, Mark Collins (Leroy Mason). In the final confrontation, Little Eagle bravely takes a bullet meant for Bill, thus giving his life for peace.
