Long DescriptionTHE SONG OF HIAWATHA This adaptation of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's beloved epic poem celebrates the heroic deeds of the legendary Ojibway chief of miraculous birth, sent by the Great Spirit to lead his people. Fur trader Jean Bertrand, French priest Father Marcel and Indian interpreter O Kagh ( Graham Greene ) canoe through the Lake Superior region in search of Hiawatha. Tribesmen guide them to the lodge of his grandmother, Nokomis, where she and tribal elder Iagoo tell Hiawatha's story.
