The Last of the Mohicans | Tuba City Unified School District #15

The Last of the Mohicans

Cora and Alice Munro, daughters of Lieutenant Colonel Munro, are traveling with a column of reinforcements from Fort Edward to Fort William Henry, where Munro is commanding an army. In the party are David Gamut, the singing teacher, and Major Duncan Heyward, the group’s military leader.

Magua, a Huron scout secretly allied with the French, leads them into an ambush. Natty Bumppo (also known as Hawkeye) and his Mohican friends, Chingachgook and his son Uncas, rescue the party. Knowing that Magua will return with reinforcements, Hawkeye and the Mohicans lead their new companions to a cave and split up for safety.

Magua returns with more Hurons and captures Heyward, Gamut, and the Munro sisters. When Cora demands to know why the Hurons were so eager to capture them, Magua says that Colonel Munro and the “Canada fathers” introduced him to firewater, causing him to get drunk and be expelled from his tribe. He allied with the Mohawks but continued to drink. After Munro had him whipped after drunken disorder, Magua returned to the Hurons and is leading them in revenge against the British. He offers to spare the party if Cora will go with him as his wife to the Huron village, but she refuses.
