Summary, etc.:
Inspired by actual events, TONKA tells the story of the only survivor of the famed 7th Calvary who fought at Custer's Last Stand. Sal Mineo stars as White Bull, a young Indian brave who captures and tames a wild stallion and names him Tonka. But when White Bull's cruel cousin claims Tonka for his own and mistreats the horse, White Bull sets it free. Tonka finally finds a home with Capt. Keogh and the 7th Calvary, and in 1876, rides into The Battle Of The Little Big Horn with General Armstrong Custer. So mount up for this spirited tale of adventure and history, and take a ride with TONKA.
