Thank you for the reputation, guys. I think the issue is clear enough by now, for most users.

Around 40 to 50,000 Loyalists left the U.S. at the end of the war. That is about 10 percent of the total number of Loyalists/Tories in the U.S. Those that left more or less had to leave as they were the ones who took up arms against the United Colonies/United States and they looked forward to alienation, loss of their property, incarceration, or even the business end of a gallows (the verb "to lynch" comes about in this time as a certain judge by said name hung every Tory he could get his hands on). So they did not "vote" so much with their feet, but were more or less forced out. They represented 1/10th of 1/5th of the White population in the U.S.

This is actually one of the many things the movie got wrong. These Indians are Pawnee. The Pawnee were actually on the US Army's side. They often served as scouts. Remember the end of the movie where the Cavalry finds where the village had been? If the had instead said they were say, Kiowa, that would have worked historically. Even Wichitas would have been better.
