The White Squaw offers an interesting twist on a standard western plot device. Instead of attempting to force an Indian tribe off their land, the government is trying to reclaim the property of white settler Sigrod Swanson (David Brian) and then give it back to the Indians. The title character, Eelay-O-Wahnee (May Wynn) is a half-breed Sioux, whom Swanson has singled out for persecution. Bob Garth (William Bishop) rushes to the "white squaw"'s defense, sparking a violent climactic clash in which Swanson brings about his own demise. The White Squaw was adapted from a novel by Larabie Sutter.
