Westinghouse Presents: The Dispossessed (1961)Drama · 24 October 1961
In 1879, the American Indian lived under severe handicaps. He had no legal status as a human being, and he was required to stay on his reservation. Defying the law, Ponca chief Standing Bear leads his people off their disease-ridden reservation. Though they're captured, the Poncas are given three days to find a lawyer and find a legal way to become their own people once again. This special was based on an actual incident.
