Disguised as an Indian, he goes back to the village where someone steps on his blanket and the chase begins. Keaton runs to a cliff top and tries to hide behind the blanket, but the Indian tosses Keaton off, who uses the blanket as a parachute.
He runs to a log cabin where he finds a roll of asbestos. While his pursuers find a log to batter down the door, Keaton fashions a set of asbestos BVDs, which he puts on under his clothes. The Indians knock down the door on top of him and run over it, allowing him to crawl out and run away.
Buster gets initiated into the tribe only after a considerable trial, he gets put up to broil in a fire, and survives because he surreptitiously put on a fireproof suit.
Keaton becomes a member in good standing, and Roberts consults him when they get a notice to vacate. Keaton hands his smoking jacket and pipe to his valet and the tribe helps Roberts mount the horse, though Buster gets on to a different horse that faces the wrong direction!
In the movie The Pale face, Buster Keaton faints and the Indians tie him to the stake, as soon as he gets conscious he starts fooling the Indian who is stacking wood to burn him.
