This Lorillard Tobacco Company film profiles the Sioux people of the Rosebud Reservation in South Dakota. According to a 1952 advertising magazine, the company featured a Native American theme to highlight their Old Gold cigarette brand’s wooden Indian trademark, and to pay tribute to the Native American origins of tobacco. Lorillard, founded in 1760, was purchased by Reynolds American in 2015. This 1950 documentary is part of the Library of Congress online collection of the National Film Preservation Foundation. Portions of the original audio track in this film are damaged, so there are occasional gaps in the sound. close
