About this product
- DescriptionTwo calamitous events occur that pave the way for the hostile beginnings of an assimilation process between the Greenland Norse settlers and the natives of Vinland. The first mixing of cultures occurs when a woman of the Northmen, Thora, and Deskaheh the Haudesaunee, marry. This union is accepted enthusiastically by the Northmen. For all the people of this land the way is rocky and fraught with danger at every turn, but an acceptance and friendship develops between the Northmen and the Naskapi, ather native tribe, over an affair of hour. Will this developing relationship allow the Northmen to remain in the homeland of the Naskapi, or are they doomed to failure? From the outset, the warriors of these various tribes violently resisted the incursion of the tall, pale-skinned invaders. The overwhelming numbers of the native peoples in Vinland hold the fate of the Northmen in their hands.
