: 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???
Petra did a nice job on #'s 2 & 3 ... To answer your first question, it's called "running the gauntlet", though the scene in LOTM is somewhat atypical in that it was usually performed on captives. It was a test. A measure of bravery & inner-strength.
