Chato’s Land (1972) is directed by Michael Winner and stars Charles Bronson as a 'half-breed' American Indian fighting Whites.

After Pardon Chato, a mestizo, killed a US marshal in self-defence, a posse pursues him, but as the white volunteers advance deep in Indian Territory they become more hunted then prey, leading to internal strife. They rape Chato's squaw, and are hunted down to the last man by the unrelenting warrior.
