I ain't warnin' you folks again.

I meant what I said.

He don't eat. I'll kill the

first man that tries to feed him!

I aim to deliver him

just alive-no more.

Put that rifle down, Sheriff.

- How come?

- We've taken all we can from you, Sheriff.

We're Christian people. We

like to think we're civilized.

We'd be neither if we left a

fellow man to thirst and starve.

Unlash him.

I don't buffalo easy.

Neither do I! Untie him.

You got no right to do this.

You may handcuff one of

his hands to the wheel.

That way your prisoner will be

safe, and he'll still manage to eat.

Now, if someone will bring

this man a plate of food.

Here's some.

Will you give me your word to

behave in a reasonable manner?

And, you, don't you ever raise your

gun against any of our people again.

Not even against youngsters

a third your size.

She's washing his face. It would

be her who'd throw herself at him.

Imagine, so man-hungry as to throw

yourself even at an Indian-loving murderer.

- She's just being kind.

- She's an outsider.

She doesn't have to

care what people think.

Just look at her.

Wouldn't surprise me if she

even went to him in the night...

when the rest of us are sleeping.

- She's got no shame.

- You're the shameless one.

What do you mean by that?

You act so clean and think so dirty.

I? Dirty?


Like when you say "Indian-lover"

and make it sound so filthy.

That's exactly the

way I want it to sound.

It is something filthy.

It was something filthy when my

father took your mother as his woman.

I suppose you think that was clean.

A white man and a Navajo squaw...

sneaking off up some dark wash...

in the night like a pair of animals?

And look what came of it. You.

Oh, don't think an education and a white

name make up for where you came from.
