: Diane asks:
: : : Except for the final scene and Ching.'s speach, does he speak English anywhere else in the film? Is he supposed to understand English? Throughout the film Hawkeye speaks to him in Mohican, they discussed strategy "behind the falls" in Mohican.
: Hi, Diane! Chingachgook speaks English at the Cameron's farm. I've always figured he understood it just fine, but preferred conversing with his family in Mohican...anybody have thoughts on this?
I think that is fairly common in bilingual households... my mother is German and in my family we prefer to converse in German...
