    Full title reads: "ROOSEVELT - "LONE CHIEF" - Warriors f the Blackfeet Tribe honour U.S. President."

    Glacier National Park, Montana, United States of America (USA).

    Line of cars driving along the mountain road. American President Franklin Delano Roosevelt in one of the cars. Long shot of the mountain resort - two big buildings, probably hotels with some cottages around. Crowd gathered in front of the buildings waiting for President's arrival.

    President Roosevelt (seated in his car) receives feathered headgear - traditional head wear of Indian chiefs - from two representatives of the Blackfeet Tribe. President receives a tomahawk and more presents. President is made 'Lone Chief' of the Blackfeet Tribe.

    Indians in traditional costumes dancing - native dance performance for the President who is watching the dance from his car.

    For the whole ceremony, the President is seated in his car - it seems that he is having a difficult period concerning his illness.
