Storyline

Indefatigable in the extreme was the Mohawk; excessive in his expression of gratitude, ha is equally determined in his quest for vengeance; justice, however, being his incentive. Highly emotional, he possesses the power of dissembling to such an extent, as to ascribe aim stoical. This double nature is clearly shown in this Biograph story, which gives it a Cooper atmosphere. Dr. Van Brum, the white medicine-man, is a being totally devoid of fellow-feeling, in fact, a contemptible despot. The Indian medicine-man has failed to cure the little papoose, over whom the brave and his squaw bend in abject anxiety, The medicine man incantations proving fruitless, the brave decides to seek the white doctor's aid. Van Brum refuses to waste his time on this Indian, and in reply to the poor fellow's earnest entreaties, knocks him down.

It possesses something approaching a Cooper flavor
23 August 2015 | by deickemeyerSee all my reviews

In so far as the peculiar characteristics which control Indians and mark their actions are interesting, this film is interesting. In some scenes it possesses something approaching a Cooper flavor. In others it falls below this standard. It emphasizes the characteristic which declares that the Indian's memory of friend or foe is equally strong. Further, it depicts very graphically how easy it is for the savage mind, which grasps only what it sees, to fall into the error of fetish, or charm, worship. The doctor here received no more than he deserved. Such unnecessary abuse and insults as he heaped upon the Indians quite deserved the punishment which was meted out to him. - The Moving Picture World, September 24, 1910
