In the second installment of Ted Turner's ambitious historical film series The Native Americans, J.C. White Shirt and Eric Schweig play a pair of Mohawks who adopt differing attitudes toward encroaching British settlers in the 18th century, a period that saw the fracturing of the Iroquois league and its six tribes.

Like last year's remake of The Last of the Mohicans, this film has vivid visuals and a rather paltry plot. Pierce Brosnan and Buffy Sainte-Maric turn in ludicrous performances as an Indian agent and a Mohawk clan mother. Wes Studi, Graham Greene and Floyd Red Crow Westerman do far more with much less in supporting roles.
