By order of the Cherokee Council,
Chief Doublehead is guilty of
treason for selling Cherokee land
against council law. Our trusted
new War Chief, The Ridge, is given
the honor of executing the judged.
The Ridge stands and bravely acknowledges. The Chief wants to get this issued settled quickly.
You will choose a confederate and
carry out your poor duty, tonight.
The Ridge looks around the room.
A council fire burns in the fireplace lighting the council member's faces.
As the council orders.
The Chief looks kindly at Ridge. Ridge turns and walks out.
The council meeting continues.

The Ridge walks to his horse. He pulls a rifle from its scabbard and checks the weapon. He returns his rifle to its
place. He takes his pistol from its holster, checks it and returns the pistol to its holster.
The Ridge gets on his horse. He rides to SANDERS, a tall muscular Cherokee man standing by his horse and speaks to him for a moment. Sanders mounts up and they rides into the darkness.EXT. ROSS FAMILY HOME
John and Talmidge watch intently. John looks at Talmidge.
Let's follow him. I want to see this.
Talmidge shakes his head, no. Quatie quietly walks behind them and speaks.
