Chet Cededon knows that somewhere in the mountains there is a rich gold mine belonging to the Indians. He wants to take it with the help of the son of a tribal leader, who was educated among whites. But Moya himself becomes the leader of his people, as his father dies, and the elders choose him.
He refuses Chet, realizing that the mine belongs to his people and they themselves need this gold for survival in a new world. But Chet also hired mining engineer Gale to find the mine and stole the Indian to secure him to force him to confess his confession. When Gayle accidentally stumbles upon his employer, who beats Moya, he takes the side of the Indians.
