    Awhile back I stumbled upon the website of some guy who created a custom knife and tomahawk for some recent movie. Very cool looking tools. O' course, I didn't bookmark it and cannot find it again. He was selling posters of the knife and 'hawk. Sound familiar to anyone?

    Corny movie and don't know how realistic. Shanghai Noon, Jackie Chan fights some Blackfoot(?) warriors that throw and catch some hawks.

    While we're on the genre, I can recall seeing a movie a long time ago, that I don't remember the title to.

    The story followed a Jesuit Missionary who came to the new world & was captured by a rival group of Indians, along with some others, and had to escape. He amazed them with the concept of books & writing, one group of Indians got sick & were pressured to convert, there was an Indian holy man who was a midget... I seem to recall it was a Canadian film... I don't specifically remember a lot of tomahawk action, but there were matchlock guns, ball headed war clubs, etc. Ring a bell?


    Also, while we're on the subject, I think it was in the remake of The Scarlet Letter (with Demi Moore) where her husband was captured by Indians and returned later in the film to wreak havok with a tomahawk.

    Was the first one called The Mission?
    I saw that one a long time ago (like 1989).
    All I remember was the guy doing penance by carrying all the guys' armor up a hill in a big net bag. Not sure if it was the same one.

    I just found a trailer for The Mission on Youtube- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PvWaD-NErlY but I don't think that's it. That one looks more like something from South or Central America, whereas the one I'm thinking of was set in northern North America or New England or something.

    There's also Pathfinder, kind of a let down. I think the vikings have more axes than the natives. I can't remember if the shaman has a club or staff.

    i always get agitated by movies like this that show the vikings with the horns on their helmets and what not. i wish they would show them in a more realistic light but maybe that wouldn't be as interesting:confused:

    That didn't bother me so much about Pathfinder as the casting the vikings int he light of "big dumb brute" bad guy.

    Let's face it, they had to have SOME brains to be able to navigate the Atlantic in their little boats back then.

    I did like the 13th Warrior, I don't know how realistic the Viking gear was but I liked the kind of variety of armor and weapons. If I remember they had one Conquistador looking one (couple hundred years off) and a Celtic type warrior. Don't care much for Banderas being Arabian though.

    IIRC, native tribes did'nt start using the tomahawk until they were made available by settlers and traders during the early european colonization of the continent and did'nt reach plains tribes until the fur trade era. I might be off a little on my time lines but the Pathfinder was set way before there was any actual colonization.

    I think the pre-Columbian Indians had stone tomahawks, but the steel hawk, of course, was a European introduction.
