Episode Summary

EDIT
Injun Kid
AIRED:
Spotted Eagle, the young son of a recently killed Sioux Indian, moves to Walnut Grove with his Caucasian mother Amelia. Amelia's father grudgingly agrees to let them stay with him, but Jeremy--who is ashamed that his daughter married a Native American--ostracizes the child and refuses to call him by his preferred name, then forces Amelia to lie about both her marriage and her son. Tension flies as the Ingalls girls become Spotted Eagle's only friends at school, and because kids are often threatened by someone who's different, poor Spotted Eagle endures harsh treatment from his most insensitive classmates--which might be somewhat bearable if he could at least form a relationship with the grandfather he loves.moreless
