The Invaders (1912)
Classic American Indian Movies Buy New at Amazon: $5.98
A relatively sensitive story of a broken treaty between Native American
tribes and the US by encroaching railroad men.
The film was restored by the Library of Congress, copied at 18fps from a 35mm print.
plot: The U.S. Army and the Indians sign a peace treaty. However, a group of surveyors trespass on the Indians' land and violate the treaty. The army refuses to listen to the Indians' complaints, and the surveyors are killed by the Indians. A vicious Indian war ensues, culminating in an Indian attack on an army fort.

Subject: Something to Think About
This is a surprisingly more accurate portrayal of the way the "white man" handled the follow through of treaties with the Indians. The government probably saw this piece and couldn't bare the truth to the degree of suggesting to Hollywood that it produce history more to its liking.
The film is not complete, but it's clear to where the story is going. Maybe someone ought to run this for the Congress today.
