The Wild Dakotas tells the story of a group of settlers finding a location to build a new city on the frontiers of the old USA, in Dakota. The group of settlers is led by wagon master Aaron Baring (Jim Davis). On their way to the ideal settlement location in the Powder Valley, the group comes along a series of smoke signals the Indians use to communicate. When they arrive in the valley, quickly the settlers start out to stake their claim to a piece of the valley in the city to be, even though they are frequently warned by their scout Jim Henry (Bill Williams) that the land belongs to the Arapaho. In order to avoid conflict, he suggests to meet with the local tribe. Baring has managed to stake out the center of the town for himself, and is not interested in making a deal with the Indians. So when the chieftain of the Indians Antelope (John Miljan) arrives in town, he tells the chief that any Indian within ten miles of the city will be shot. Baring subsequently accuses Jim of being a traitor and after light torture sends him out of town. The actions by Baring and his friends drive a wedge between the settlers. As a result, some of the settlers leave to find help with the Indians.
