In the movie, Fletcher Christian led the mutiny against the ship’s captain, Lieutenant William Bligh. During the course of the trip, situations did not always go well causing distrust and discontentment among the ship’s crew. Once the ship landed in Tahiti, the crew formed attachments to the women of Tahiti and the idyllic life style of the islands. The time comes for the crew and the Bounty to set sail for the West Indies in order to deliver the breadfruit trees. Three of the crew members desert the ship before the ship leaves, adding to the discontentment of the officers as well as the crew members.
As they made their way through the forest, they were attacked by Huron Indians. It's an ambush that they were led into by Magua, who was not a Mohawk, but a Huron, and a spy. Most of the party was slaughtered, but the women and Heyward were rescued by Hawkeye, a frontiersman and two Mohicans. Hawkeye released their horses and they continued to travel on foot to the fort. Their new guide, Hawkeye, was Nathaniel Poe, a white man adopted by Chingachgook, a Mohican and raised with Uncas as a son.

We have an extremely broad variety of race and culture that we all accept as equals. However, because of the occurrences on Ellis Island during the Great Migration, countless numbers of family members got “caught in the shuffle” so to speak. Several immigrants did not even make the journey over due to disease and lack of supplies on the ships which ultimately led to death. The lucky ones that did endure the diseases were then examined by a medical staff and were then sent back to their home countries. Once a person arrives by boat, goes through the medical examination, they are still not home free yet.
However, when they arrived on the island known today as Puerto Rico it had already been inhabited by the Taíno tribe for centuries. While the two groups tried to keep the peace, eventually that attempt ran out, leading to the Spaniards enslaving the Taínos. Taking away their rights and forcing them to perform hard labor such as; working in the gold mines, in thesugar or ginger industry or performing domestic work. Due to this, many Taínos committed suicide out of resistance or became victims of the small pox disease that the new settlers had brought over. This unfair treatment eventually led to the attempted revolt of 1511 and the escape of many Taínos.

He was blamed after they found out that many men died because there were not enough lifeboats. As he was the owner of the ship, he was one of the first ones to get a seat with the women on the lifeboat because he knew that there werent enough. Many men were dragged off the lifeboats as they tried to get on with their wives but he had managed to get on it without getting dragged back. Many reports have indicated Bruce Ismay bribing Thomas Andrews ,the ships designer, to decrease the watertight compartment so that there would be more first class seats.The main reason why people were agitated with him was because he survived the tragedy. Survivors of the Titanic were furious with him because there were not enough lifeboats for all the passengers on board.
