An historically detailed account of a doomed relationship just waiting to happen
17 March 2004 | by (Mono, Ontario - Canada) – See all my reviews

I liked this program because it was historically detailed and accurate. It was common thing to see intermarrying between First Nations women and white men back in the days of the Fur Trade. In this program, a Scottish trader ends up marrying the chief's daughter. Of course, I think the marriage was completely arranged by the other traders and it was doomed to fail right from the start, and it clearly showed too. The trader only wanted to marry her for financial gain and didn't care to know anything about her ways. But I was real surprised at Ikwe's attitude towards her being with him in marriage. I thought for sure that he would have been strongly opposed to them being married but if he didn't seem to care about it, then I would have to think that maybe he was probably in on something that he didn't want his daughter knowing anything about. But anyways, as it turned out, the "relationship" failed miserably since she wanted to leave him so desperately. Besides, who could blame her?? I personally don't!! LOL She had every right and reason to leave him since the white trader was only up to no good with her right from the beginning.

Well........ anyways........... that's my input on this program and why I gave this a 6 out of 10.
