Highlander of the 42nd Regiment of Foot participates in the traditional Highland sword dance, with music being provided by a piper and accompanied by an Iroquois drummer.
The similarities between the culture of the Scottish and Native American warriors gave the British during the French and Indian war a better degree of success then the French with their local allies. It also lead to the English to refer to the Scots as the ‘cousins of the Indians’.
