Squanto: A Warrior's Tale
PG | 102 min | Friday, October 28, 1994
Walt Disney Pictures 1994 production of Squanto: A Warrior's Tale, chronicles the story of the iconic Native American who was a significant figure just prior to and during the Mayflower era.
Having just married, Squanto (Adam Beach) has the misfortune of running afoul of British trinket and fur traders, winding up being captured and sent to Europe. He manages to escape soon after arriving in England, and is given refuge at a monastery, where he discovers that all "white devils" aren't evil or greedy. Eventually, Squanto hops a ship headed back to the New World, but upon arrival, discovers his former village has been wiped out by disease. His fellow Native Americans rightly blame the British and prepare for revenge, but Squanto skillfully persuades his colleagues to refrain themselves. His efforts result in the first Thanksgiving.
Filmed entirely in Nova Scotia, Squanto is a visually stunning, well-acted film. Beach, in the title role, is particularly effective. Xavier Koller, who won an Academy Award for Best Foreign Film in 1990 (Journey of Hope), directed.
