Father Louis was holding masses for the Native Americans in the MeetingHouse while the Indians and loyalists were fighting.
Now please pray...
The Hungry Frenchman was so hungry, he started a fire that caused a lot of smoke, soldiers arrived and started firing. Stands Straight was worried about the loyalists and Indians killing them.
On the way back Stands Straight was thinking about the story that the Mahican man (who was a friend) told them. The story was about six people that were murdered by a band of armed Bostoniak men, crazy with drink and ready to kill.
Hmmmm... I wonder who the six people were?
The allusion about Father Louis holding masses for the Native Americans was accurate because when I researched this allusion I got the following information: Catholic missions to Indians were usually held in masses. They were usually held by a father. Fathers asked for treaties to solidify their hold on land and money for schools and churches.
Loyalists were loyal to Great Britain during the American Revolutionary War.
The allusion about Mahican was inaccurate because the Mahican’s weren't Friends. According to my research Mahican’s are a Native American tribe. They inhabited the northern end of the Hudson valley and fought in the French and Indian War.
