Story of Joseph Brant, chief of the Mohawks, and the events that led to the birth of Canada as a nation. During the time of the American Revolution, while Britain faces full scale insurrection in its American colonies, the great Indian empire of the Six Nations must choose between longtime British allies and the American Patriots, whose democratic ideals they share.Written by
After viewing this film, it portrayed Joseph Brant as someone who was "loyal" to both his Mohawk people and the British. However, when Brant was alive his loyalties were leaning more towards the British rather than toward his own people like the way it should have been. Most Mohawks see Brant as a sellout because he bestowed more on the British ways than his own. He was educated in England while he wore mostly white clothes he brought over from there as well. He seldomly wore the traditional Mohawk clothing because he didn't want to be like his people. As a matter of fact, some of today's Mohawks say that the 6 Nations were destroyed because of Brant. It was his loyalty to Britain that caused the breakup of the 6 Nations Confederacy.
Well........ anyways......... that's my opinion on the film (for whatever its worth) LOL. That's the reason why I gave it a 7 out of 10.
