The Last Of His Tribe : Storyline

The Last Of His Tribe, Ishi, the last Yahi Indian of California, must leave his homeland and learn to navigate the world of the white man in order to survive.

A touchingly sad story about a lone Indian and his friendship with a generous white man.

The Last Of His Tribe, I saw this movie in an English class after reading “Black Elk Speaks.” It is a solemn statement about the sad plight of dying Native American tribes. Graham Greene’s character is a poor hungry Native American who has lost his family and is found trying to steal food from a small farm. A kind-hearted doctor takes him in and attempts to educate him to the ways of the white man. The middle-aged native is seduced by the prosperity of this new world, and even has an unexpected encounter with a prostitute, much to the dismay of his new guardian, the doctor. But the distractions of this new world are not enough to erase the sadness of this man who has lost his family, his tribe, and his history. In a striking scene in which the native leads his new friend to the wilderness he once called home, the native sings a mournful tribal chant in remembrance of the family and tribe that was forever gone. It is an emotionally moving film for those who feel compassion for the Native American and I recommend it to viewers who enjoy a film with a message.

A true story, every way good!

 

The Last Of His Tribe, This is a true story. It is more emotional than a soap opera and, yet, unflinchingly genuine.

Just as was depicted in this film, Ishii stumbled into a white man’s barn near Oroville, California, in 1911. He later told Kroeber that he expected nothing but death. Graham Greene’s portrayal of a soft-spoken primitive gentleman is delightful. Greene’s Ishii speaks English only after a fashion.

If you have the time, look up Kroeber’s story of Ishii in the “Handbook of California Indians”.
