Fire CloudLarge Print - 2002
Eight-year-old Janelle, the proper daughter of an affluent family, and 10-year-old Fire Cloud, a Chippewa adopted by a group of Missouri Lakotas, glimpse each other from a distance. Fifteen years later, they meet again when Fire Cloud, now a handsome young warrior, brings his deaf and mute younger brother to visit a Catholic orphanage run by Janelle's aunt, Sister Mary Ann. Janelle, now a beautiful, gently raised young woman, has fled to the convent to prevent an odious marriage arranged by her widowed father. Janelle and Fire Cloud fall in love, meeting acceptance from Sister Mary Ann and the Lakota tribe. Janelle's father, however, violently opposes their union, and he concocts a harebrained scheme to abduct Janelle and hold her prisoner until she promises to forget Fire Cloud.
