Plot Summary
Having made a name for himself as a rodeo star, Joe Lightcloud (Elvis Presley) returns to his Navajo reservation with a scheme to start a cattle business that could support the entire tribe. But no sooner does he convince a congressman to donate a stud bull and a herd than his senile father, Charlie (Burgess Meredith), cooks the former, and his feckless sister, Mary (Susan Trustman), sells the latter. Joe struggles to recoup the loss while romancing a local white woman (Quentin Dean).
