JC, you said,
"Hawkeye wanted Duncan to translate that he (Hawkeye) would bring great honor to the Huron people if he (Hawkeye) was burned in the fires. "
If he had, don't you think Sachem might have burned Hawkeye?
YOu continued :Instead Duncan translated, "take me, take me".
I don't think he translated anything at all, JC. Not a word of what Hawkeye said, I don't think the Sachem ever understood that Hawkeye was another candidate for roasting. If he said Take me take me, he repeated it for himself.
Unless I missed something... Geee, where is the remote? I MUST re-play the video!
Wwhen Duncan said "my compliments" I believe he meant in a very old-fashioned chivalrous manner, "my compliments for getting your lady."
Yes, his last minute actions/fate IS ironic. And so tragic.
Sigh. Ah, a good man that Duncan of mine.
