Abahachi, Chief of the Apache Indians, and his blood brother Ranger maintain peace and justice in the Wild West. Abahachi needs to collect a favor in the way of money from the Shoshones to finance his tribe's new saloon. Unfortunately Santa Maria, who sold the saloon, betrays Abahachi and takes the money and leaves. Soon, the Shoshones are on the warpath to get their money back, and Abahachi is forced to come up with the funds quickly. Luckily, his twin brother Winnetouch, the beautiful dancer Uschi and the Greek Dimitri each own a quarter of a treasure map that leads them to 'The Shoe of Manitu'. There, Santa Maria already awaits for them to take their newly found treasure away. But he underestimates the determination of Abahachi and his friends.

[This film is the most successful movie in German history. An expanded version “Der Schuh des Manitu - Extra large” was released on video with additional scenes.]
