His closest friends are the Indians Chingachgook and Uncas, but he has no Indian blood in him at all. She is one of the most admirable people in the book, and mainly worries about keeping her younger sister safe. Then Hawkeye shoots Magua and he finally dies. My opinion of the book is that it was really good. Hawkeye acts as the hero in the book. Hawkeye and the Mohicans come and save them and kill all of the Hurons, except Magua, who escapes. I would recommend the book to other people because I thought it was a good book and I enjoyed it. He is the villian because of what has happened to him from the Europeans. He was the chief of the Huron tribe, but is not anymore because of being so drunk often. She also has a black mother, unlike Alice, who has a white mother. Hawkeye accuses Magua of betraying his group by leading them the wrong way. Hawkeye and the Mohicans find Maguas trail a few days later and find them. She acts like an average maiden does. He has a nickname, Le Renard Subtil, which means the Subtle Fox.
