Cast & Crew
Oscar C. Apfel
To save her son Evan from the St. Regis Indians, a dying Marie Loskiel, gives her little boy to English officer Guy Johnson who, with the help of Mayaro, Chief of the Mohicans, raises the boy. Similarly, Lois Contrecoeur becomes a "hidden child" when her mother Jeanne, held captive by the Indians, sends her daughter to a colonist named Calvert in order to prevent the child's sacrifice. Each year, her mother sends Lois a little pair of moccasins, and when she reaches adulthood, the girl becomes determined to locate her mother. Learning that her mother is in the village of Catherines-town in Iroquois territory, Lois follows Morgan's riflemen on their mission into the territory, hoping that they will blaze a trail to her mother. On her journey, Lois meets Evan Loskiel, who has become the chief scout for the division. Evan falls in love with Lois and eventually wins her confidence. They reach Catherines-town just in time to witness the execution of the White Sorceress, Jeanne de Contrecoeur, for interpreting ill fortune. Evan and Mayaro intervene and rescue Jeanne, finally reuniting mother and daughter.
