The Canadians (1961) -- Taking place immediately after Custer's last stand, the Sioux have emigrated to Canada to avoid the U.S. military, which forces the Canadian Mounties into action. Ryan is instructed to take two men with him and meet with the Sioux chief (Pate), outlining the conditions of their permission to stay on Canadian soil. Ryan gives the tribe an amount of ammunition with which to hunt buffalo on the condition that no empty shell must ever be found next to a dead man. Unfortunately, this tenuous alliance is sorely tested when horse rancher Dehner arrives on the scene, outraged that forty of his steeds have gone missing, believed stolen by the Sioux.
He and his handful of henchmen attack one of the Sioux settlements and find themselves holding Stratas, a five year Sioux captive who had assimilated into the tribe. Ryan wants Dehner brought to justice for the attack, Dehner wants his horses back and Pate wants Dehner dead for killing his fellow tribes-people. Stratas is emotionally adrift, but begins to fall for the sturdy Ryan who longs to build a home of his own away from the responsibility of the Mounties.
