Dave Little Bear facing his mortality has accepted a Christian way of life, yet his children who were brought up in a Native American religious dogma are determined to bury their father in the traditional ceremonial way. But they are at odds with his illegitimate daughter who is a fundamentalist Christian and believes he should be put away through the church. Chaos soon ensues.
