Always fascinated with Native American mythology and folklore, director D.W. Griffith turned out no fewer than six "Indian" pictures in 1910. A bigoted white medicine man refuses to come to the assistance of an ailing Indian child. But the man's wife is a bit more humanitarian; unbeknownst to her husband, she sneaks into the Mohawk camp and administers the necessary medicines and poultices. The child lives, and as a result the grateful Mohawk chieftain abandons his plans to massacre the white settlement. One of these was the one-reel The Mohawk's Way, filmed "way out West" in Water Gap, New Jersey. Among the "Griffith players" in the film was future comedy producer Mack Sennett.
