Filmed by Roy Rogers Productions on Roy Rogers’ ranch in Chatsworth, California, and at Corriganville Ranch in Simi Valley, Brave Eagle was produced by NBC but aired on CBS from September 1955 to March 1956.
The western series was unique, being the first television series to star an American Indian as the lead character, and told from the American Indian’s point of view.
The program was about a young Cheyenne Chief, Brave Eagle, who struggles to keep the peace, and the daily lives of the people of his tribe as they dealt with white settlement, prejudice, and skirmishes with other tribes.
