"The Orenda" is a powerful historical epic about an idealistic Jesuit missionary caught between the warring Huron and Iroquois tribes, in the early 17th century in what is now Ontario. The plot unfolds through the points of view of the three main characters: Bird, a Huron warrior; Snow Falls, an Iroquois girl; and Christophe, a Jesuit missionary.
