"Thunder Waters" or the beautiful Indian legend of the Niagara provides the
background for "Lelawala.',
When war is threatened on the Oniahgahrahs by the tribe of the Delawares, the
Great Spirit of the Wate1's demands the sacrifice of a virgin to appease his anger.
Lelawala, the daughter of Chief Wokomis, volunteers. During this time white char-
acters appear: Eagle Eye, Bilks, Major Wallace and Lord Tatlcr, Mabel, Clarinda,
and the soldiers of the fort along with their families.
Shungela, a Wyandotte chiefs son, appears to woo Lelawala. IIC is rejected,
and when Klolowar, the l2llllG1',S brother, interferes, Shungela kills him.
The rejected lover conceives the plan of spiriting away the Indian maiden and
her friend, Mabel. Act II opens with the two maids in captivity. Eagle Eye creeps
into camp and effects their escape. In Scene 2 of this Act the successful war party
returns and there is great joy and feasting. Then Marpeetopah. the Prophetess, in-
terprets another spirit messageg Lelawala must be sent over Niagara Falls in a white,
flower-bedecked canoe, the following day.
Act III finds Marpeetopah bringing a new, and more joyful message to the In-
dians, sparing Lelawala. Here a new custom is developed, whereby the sacrificial
canoe is used for a harmless ceremony. Lelawala is wedded to Sownnas, an Algon-
quin lover, and all ends happily.
