Enraged, Josh seeks out his Kiahawk friends to help rescue his wife. But the Kiahawks are preparing for their own vengeance, meeting at the sacred burial grounds, as they call on their ancestors to guide them. While there, the Chief has a vision of a man and horse as one, leading his people to justice. When Josh arrives on horseback, he realizes the man in the vision is Josh. The Chief then spills Josh's blood upon the ancestral graves, making him one with the Kiahawks, and imparting to him the spiritual protection of Indian "medicine". Painting a mustang horse on his chest, he makes Josh the new chief, Chief Lightning Horse. But Josh knows that this new role and medicine comes with a price, and a vow to seek revenge!
