: I read something by Russell Means about this. There were American Indian extras brought in for the filming. They were mostly used at night, and they stayed in horrible, terribly hot shacks during the day. Russell Means, Daniel Day-Lewis, and Eric Schweig picketed for about four hours before anything was done about it. Does anyone else know anything about this?
Georgette, check under "Even More Mohican Musings" on this site. There is an account of the Indian Protest that may give you some insights. This site is getting so big, it is often hard to find time to look over every section, but it is really worthwhile to do so. Rich & Elaine have gathered so much information for us, in addition to providing us with this bulletin board for discussions! If you are new to the site, be sure to check out all of the Musings pages, the Soldier#1 & Soldier #2 sections, and the history of the *real* events of the siege of Fort William Henry & it's historical participants. Good stuff, here!
