Watch the clip from the movie Last of the Mohicans detailing siege and guerrilla warfare in the Seven Years War. Explore the dynamics of siege warfare, the differing ideas of honor and actions of diplomacy by the British and French commanders and compare that with the type of warfare conducted by the Native Americans.
Think about how different views of war and honor influence our interpretation of people in the past as being “good” or “bad.”
Also think about the filmmaker and the use of history to create a narrative and the interplay between good and bad guys. The film establishes the Mohican forces as “good” whereas the Huron are “bad” and their leader provides a “nemesis” for the main actors to oppose. Watch the clip from the movie and post a discussion that answers the following questions:
Is this movie an accurate depiction of history and the complex interactions between European powers with various native groups? Or, was the film simply creating a story for effective movie making?
Describe how the director sets up “good” and “bad” characters. How do viewers know the difference?
Describe the differences between European warfare and native warfare.
