“The Daughter of Dawn” was shot in the summer of 1920 in the Wichita Mountains using an all-Indian cast. The silent film was thought to be lost but now has been found and restored by the Oklahoma Historical Society.

Always cool when stuff like this is found, but I'm having a hard time believing that the film meant as much to the Kiowa and Comanche as it does to the "sale of the DVD" as Mr. Blackburn pointed out.
My 2 cents
