Maj. Duncan Heyward: What will happen to Chingachgook now?

Hawkeye: It takes a Mohican only minutes to bury his dead...but many moons to bury his grief. He'll wander the hills alone until he's ready to come down. Then we'll both go back into the forest and try to find what we lost.

Maj. Duncan Heyward: What is that?

Hawkeye: Peace. Peace, Major. The most precious thing a man can have. Chingachgook and me, we'll help those who want to see peace grow.
