[tense music]

[thud]

I can give you

100 of these.

Why do we need these?

To fight the Americans.

We have a treaty

with the Americans.

Lots of our people say that.

Then the Americans

make belts with their skin.

Is that what

this man tells you?

This war is the Americans'

excuse to seize Mohawk land.

I promise you, my king

extends a chain of friendship.

He doesn't want your lands.

No.

He wants us to die for him.

You're already dying...

Wentahawi,

the Americans have scalped

eighty-seven Mohawk

this month!

And they leave their bodies

to be eaten by the animals!

That was far from here.

Their Red House is nearby.

With at least

twenty armed men.

And more will come.

Trust me.

You have to stop them.

Our people will never agree.

We can ask Uncle.

He'll listen.

He's living at the mission

while he hunts.

He won't be back for weeks.

If he sides with King George,

the Mohawk will follow.

More words

from your white man.

I have hunted with Calvin

for over three months,

Wentahawi.

He knows I am a man

of my word.

Boys like Calvin

will listen to any man

that promises him war.

We must act

or the Americans will kill us!

This Britisher

only wants to use your body

to protect him

from American rifles.

And to keep you both

warm at night!

[speaking Mohawk]

I would never harm Calvin...

or your daughter.

How far have we come?

Half our whiskey,

give or take.

The sun is up.

Still no sign of Calvin.

He'll show up.

You know he doesn't

like to sleep alone.

My mother doesn't understand.

She's just cautious.

She's scared.

There's no room

for that anymore.

- [sighs]

- I'm going to miss this.

Then why leave?

My father is

a very important man.

He has plans for me there...

but I will miss

these magical trees.

[chuckles]

What about me and Calvin?

You must finish

what we've started.

I have faith in you...

and Calvin.

[chuckles]

[eerie music]

[thunder rumbles]

[groans]

Oh.

I can't drink like you.

No one can.

- [speaking Mohawk]

- Hmm?

I have to tell

you something.

Shh.

Someone's coming.

[panting]

Calvin.

We need to move!

[speaking Mohawk]

I killed them.

I killed them all.

Jesus. That was

a last resort, Calvin.

Oak!

Where are you going?!

This is bad, Calvin!

Someone has to

stop The Big Knives!

[speaking Mohawk]

You sound like your mother!

I am nothing

like my mother!

I want the demons

to leave and I will fight.

But you what you did,

Calvin, it was stupid.

Now we have to get back

and tell the people

we're at war.

They'll have to support me.

And if they don't, we'll go

upstream to find your uncle.

- [scoffs]

- Don't you speak for my family.

Nothing will happen to them.

I promise.

I had to do it, Oak.

They're going to kill us all

if we don't fight.

My mother's going

to kill us first.

If you mother

will not support us,

we need to get to your

uncle as soon as possible.

How far is it

to the mission...?

[whispers]

Oak?

Calvin?

Oak?

Nice, ain't it?

Whoa there, friend.

The name's Myles...

Myles Quincy Holt.

Look, I didn't mean

to frighten you.

You, uh...

You got a name?

- Joshua.

- Joshua?

Well, that in the Hell are

you doing out here, Joshua?

This is Injun land.

I live here.

Well, I'll be fucked.

A white man...

livin' out here.

Jesus. Ain't you afraid

of getting scalped?

In my experience,

it's the white man

who does the scalping.

Now ain't the truth?

Do you, by any chance,

know George McFeely?

He's up in, uh...

Fort Niagara?

Well, I heard he got himself

thirty Injun scalps.

I can't say our

paths have crossed.

Me and my men...
