Okay three questions:
1. A scene in Follow The River shows the captives having to run through a double line of Shawnee who were beating them with lashes, I was wondering if this ritual is related to the one in the Huron Village in LOTM where Hawkeye was subject to taunts and attacks as he approached???
2. Eric S mentions in his interview that he was disappointed with the lack of womens roles in LOTM. This led me to wonder what the postion or status of NA women were, historically, in the tribe? In NZ very few Maori women, even now, have speaking rights on the marae(Meeting house) their role is to support the mens speech with song - kind of a power behind the throne thing!
3. This may have been discussed before but since I'm a newie, what do you LOTMers think of Dances With Wolves. I kind of really liked it even though Kevin Costner leaves me a bit cold, but I have heard or read that it is a bit shy of being historically accurate - as far as the portrayal of that particular tribe!!??
That's all for now!! Can anyone help??
Post a Followup
