When the desired amount of furs were gathered, the majority of traders would return to their homeland ... Often they left not only with the prized pelts, but with various cultural articles they "acquired".Among the items taken to Russia were the spirit masks of the native people ... Debra-Oregon Omg just got done watching last of the mohicans and i cried i loved ur character!!!! God Bless, Love and Respect, hope to see more of you in the future, I can always see you in my dreams. This page is in no way to suggest that we are again in the business of selling Eric Schweig's art.
By reproducing these masks from the museum photos we are in fact taking them back to where they belong. Everything else on the mask was done in collaboration with Art Thompson, who, in my mind, is one of the most gifted carvers the planet has to offer. It's an intensely personal mask, because I was adopted and brutalized; so, if there's anyone else on this web site, Indigenous or otherwise, who was unceremoniously uprooted and raised like an animal, this mask is for all of you ... As far as any business dealings regarding my masks and other art goes, Mohican Press are, and as far as I can tell, always will be, on the up & up. Certainly, they are not ripping me off in any way, shape, or form. In the future, to avoid any confusion, ALL persons seeking to market my art need to go through Mohican Press to validate any deal.

The success of the film and the publicity it generated afforded the actor visibility that opened new doors in the film industry.
Schweig went on to star in numerous major film productions.
I have been a big fan for a long time, you are a beautiful man, my heart is with the Native Americans as I am 1/8 Indian blood but can not find which tribe I belong to. I am very proud of what you have done with your life after facing so much adversity.
I will always enjoy the story of Follow the River, wonderful movie!
