The Last Pre-Mohicanland Musing

The Final Scene.

CHINGACHGOOK: The frontier moves with the sun and pushes the red man in front of it until one day there will be nowhere left. Then our race will be no more, or be not us.

HAWKEYE: That's my father's sadness talking.

CHINGACHGOOK: No, it is true. The frontier place is for people like my white son and his woman and their children. And one day there will be no more frontier. And men like you will go too, like the Mohicans. And new people will come, work, struggle. Some will make their life. But once, we were here.
