Yes, it makes sense that Uncas would see that the Major and the other guy needed help (Duncan's paddling action was pretty weak). But the underlying question is, why would he suddenly consider them part of the group, when a few seconds before, Major Heyward was threatening Hawkeye with a gun, and with hanging?! I guess maybe it was simply apparent that they were now all in this together?? Maybe Uncas realized they were ALL being pursued, and that the more men they had to fight, the better off they'd be. I think I just answered my own question!
