Native American children are preparing for hunting, by dancing. The hunters, however, prove that they are no more than a threat to themselves. A duo of hunters attempt to catch a squirrel, but they fail. Another hunter attempts to get a donkey ride, but fails miserably. But the worst part comes when one of the hunter's brother gets the attention of a bear who wants his brother candy. The hunters find themselves being chased off a cliff, and the bear gets the candy, and the hunters go home with nothing.
