Storyline

Jim Thorpe is a member of the Sac and Fox Nation and his native name, Wa-Tho-Huk, translates as Bright Path. In 1912, he wins two Olympic gold track and field medals, representing the United States while his citizenship goes unrecognized during a period of cultural genocide for Native Americans. Known as one of the most versatile athletes, Thorpe goes on to play Major League Baseball, professional football and eventually founds the organization that becomes the National Football League.
