This is significant because both were considered heroes and everyone was proud of them. In the movie - The Whale Rider - Karo told Piakea that she is a “wise leader”, and Antigone had ruined everything and would be killed.

 

The collective noun "everyone" is considered a singular noun, hence the singular verb "was" rather than "were".
