The Multi-culture Club – Advisor – Ms. Confino -
Native American leaders fought for recognition, respect and rights for their people — a struggle that continues today. Many stories have been misinterpreted, misrepresented and even romanticized over the years, including the famous one of Pocahontas.
Pocahontas (1595–1617) was a Powhatan Native American woman known for her involvement with English colonial settlement at Jamestown, Virginia. In a well-known historical anecdote, she saved the life of an Englishman named John Smith, by placing her head upon his own at the moment of his execution by her father.
After much investigation, it is thought that Smith might have misinterpreted what was actually a ritual ceremony.
Now, 400 years after her death, the story of the real Pocahontas is finally being accurately explored.
