Cora Munro (The Last of the Mohicans) Cora Munro is the ill-fated young girl of mixed descent in James Fennimore Cooper’s novel of the French and Indian War, The Last of the Mohicans, published in 1826 and part of his “Leatherstocking Series”. Set against the backdrop of the French and Indian War of the 18th century, the character of the dark Cora is drawn in opposition to her fair, blonde sister, Alice, both in looks and in temperament. (Picture Madeleine Stowe, who played her in the 1992 movie version.) In this alone, she stands out from the typical 19th century heroines, as a solemn and serious young woman. The object of Cora’s love in this frontier romance is the Indian, Uncas, who is one of the guides helping her and her sister reach their father at his fort. After enduring harrowing kidnappings, escapes and reunions, the doomed would-be lovers are finally killed by the Huron, Magua. As Cora and Uncas are given ritual tribal burials, the elder sage, Tamenund, speaks the prophetic words that ring true today: "The pale-faces are masters of the earth, and the time of the red-men has not yet come again...."
