Some beats — like this episode’s “Cowboys and Indians” opening vignette — suggest the show is aware of the fraught history here. But watching this episode, that’s hard to imagine.
In the Mohawk village, Claire discovers her necklace belonged to Otter Tooth, a fellow time traveler. He came back to warn the Mohawk against encroaching colonials. Many dismissed him, but some remembered his words a generation later: “You will be forgotten. The nations of the Iroquois will be no more. No one will tell your stories. Everything you are will be lost.”
