We cannot survive on this rocky terrain...but God has given us this hardship for a reason
There is no land we can farm and survive on, but our faith in God will get us through this hard time
God has sent an urge for us to steal in order for us to survive.
These savage barbarians have items that we could use to live!
Thank you for coming in peace. We are happy to work with you!
We come in peace. We do no harm.
In this scene, the Puritans have arrived on Cape Cod and are disappointed with what they see. There is no land to farm in the rocky terrain and they see their chances of survival as slim to none, however, they believe that God will get them through this hardship.
In this scene, the Puritans are stealing items from the Indians by means of survival. They justify themselves by stating that their actions were executed due to God's plans for them.
In this scene, the Indians have boldly approached the Puritans in an effort to make peace. This was a pivotal moment in this chapter as we saw the Puritans have a different view of others who were not their own. The Puritans were able to see that the "savage barbarians" they once called the Indians actually came in peace and made an effort to communicate (even if it was in broken English).
