Description: To the glittering world of New York society in the 1920s, Chief Buffalo Child Long Lance was a presidential appointee to West Point, war hero, movie star, daring aviator, charming socialite, respected journalist, best-selling author, and Indian advocate and activist -- a full-blooded Blackfoot chief who captured the imagination of North America with the story of his life and the plight of his people.

But Long Lance was really Sylvester Long, born into slavery of mixed blood parents in the American south. He used his "Indian ancestry" to gain entry into a military college and, in an audacious move, to write President Wilson to request an appointment to West Point -- claiming to be a full-blooded Cherokee from Oklahoma.
