Who were "Two Lance and Wife" and "Luke Big Turnip and Wife?" And why did the New York Motion Picture Company pay them each week? Two California teens found the 1914 ledger in their great grandfather's attic. They ask HISTORY DETECTIVES host Eduardo Pagan to find out how these Native Americans earned their pay. Did Hollywood treat them fairly?
