Synopsis: At twenty-six, Noel Starblanket is one of the youngest Indian chiefs in North America--twice elected chief of the Starblanket Reserve, and also elected vice-president of all Saskatchewan Indians. His great-grandfather's advice was to "learn the wit and cunning of the White man." That he did. Here he is seen in action, an Indian chief with a briefcase, working with government officials for grants, running for public office, talking down his opposition, and solving the domestic problems of his reserve.
