I'm wondering, in the elk hunt scene, after the elk has been killed, Chingachgook says (subtitled) We're Sorry to kill you, Brother. Forgive us. I do honor to your courage and speed, your strenght...

My wondering is, Was this a typical type of action for Native Americans in that time period and maybe still today? Is this a kind of prayer for lack of a better description? Is it an authentic saying? Was this hunt special in it's own way or were all hunts ended this way? Shirl
