1980s (?) Western. Young blonde woman tickles Native American to win an arm wrestling match in a log cabin.

I believe this was mid 1980s. I think the young woman was living with her father in a log cabin and the Native American and her father were on friendly terms, but this may have been the first time that she had met him. The scene was vaguely flirtatious.

That's all I can remember other than I enjoyed the film.

May well have been made for TV movie or an episode of a TV show.

Probably not what you're describing, but it reminds me, vaguely, of Cat Ballou
I love that film and I know what you mean, but it isn't the one. Thanks for suggesting it though.
how sure are you on the relationships of the characters? Father/daughter dynamic, specifically?

***Randomly selected a western TV series from a wiki list, and it has some similar elements to what you describe:

Paradise (TV series)

"Paradise, set from 1890 and on, starred Lee Horsley as Cord, a professional gunfighter who was forced to take custody of the four children of his sister, a St. Louis singer who was dying and unable to make any other arrangements for their care. Cord realized his profession was unsuitable to child rearing and decided to change, renting a farm from Amelia Lawson (Sigrid Thornton), who also owned the local bank in the small town of Paradise, California (the origin of the title). Ethan tried to live a peaceful life, but was constantly haunted by his violent past and frequently called upon by the townspeople to defend them from lawlessness. Cord was close friends with John Taylor (Dehl Berti), a Native American medicine man, who often provided him with wise counsel and insights into human nature."
I'm not 100% sure. I've had a quick look and this looks quite possible, I will check it out more and get back to you. Thanks.
