| Cheating the Indians
Indian Agent finds Tim Holt and Richard Martin getting themselves involved with some bottom feeding Indian Agent played by Tom Keane who is stealing government supplies consigned by the Bureau Of Indian Affairs for Noah Beery, Jr. and the tribe he is chief of. But perennial western villain Woods has a whole new idea, he's going to say the supplies never arrived and sell them to prospector's at a gold strike area who are paying top dollar for them. If you remember in the much bigger budgeted Bend Of The River that was idea in that film as well although the ones being swindled weren't Indians. Woods is the freighter and he and Keene are in on this scheme together.

To show how desperate they are Beery and his wife Claudia Drake leave their baby at Holt and Martin's ranch and one Chito Jose Gonzalez Bustamante Rafferty takes quite a shine to the toddler. And you only Chito liked big girls. That gets Holt's attention and newspaper reporter Nan Leslie follows with the scoop of the year.

Although Indian Agent does not rank up there with Broken Arrow, Devil's Doorway and Fort Apache as a western sympathetic to the Indian point of view it was nice to see their issues filtering down to the B picture kid market as well.
