Pocahontas

Parent Category: Algonquian Indians
The story of Pocahontas, the beloved daughter of Powhatan, has been enjoyed by schoolchildren for generations. Stories handed down in books and Disney's largely fictionalized version of the maiden have made her famous and larger than life. This category is to separate fact from fiction about Pocahontas, Powhatan, John Rolfe and, of course, John Smith.
There is no certain information about the history of Pocahontas. We don't know if she had a romantic relationship with John Smith. Could he be called pocahontas's boyfriend? There is a notion about a man from her own tribe, captain Kocoum, that she was married to. Then finally there's John Rolfe,...
She was the first of her kind to sail to England and she stood up to her father, the chief of their tribe. She also protected the English from her father.

no Pocahontas did not go to school
They were pompous and felt that the natives were savages. They were not refined and did not own property and most tribes were transient. The black population were considered uneducated and only good for manual labor.

Yes. There are pictures and eye witness accounts of her life.
yes, he is real cause he wrote a book about Pocahontas and Pocahontas saved him
When Pocahontas was older, she was a celebrity in England. She met the king and queen of England and was treated as a royal. At the age around 21 or 22, Pocahontas became sick and died.
Pocahontas was the youngest daughter of the mighty Indian king Powathan. So that makes her a princess.
Pocahontas was famous for saving John Smith's life. She was also known for being a peacemaker because she created peace between the Indians and the English for at least eight years.
When her tribe was about to club John Smith to death, Pocahontas held Smith's head in her arms and begged her father to spare his life. Because Pocahontas was Powhatan's favorite daughter, he spared Smith's life.

Captain John Smith died in London on June 21, 1631. He is buried in St. Sepulchre's Church.

pohaton (her father) had guns and captives in order to get these back the English captured pocahontus a the price of 7 captives and all of the guns
The story we know is not true. Actually the colonist landed in an area of 14,000 Native Americans and in the worse land in the area. Powhatan pretty much left them alone. I think he figured that they would die from the bad water and disease . He was fairly right. Within 6 months there were only 34...
No. She did not.He did NOT save Jamestown. He was only there a very few months and he lied about his contribution to the settlement in a book he wrote several years later. He also made up the story about Pocahontas and she died young so couldn't refute his story. The man who did save Jamestown was...

Pocahontas was baptized, christened Rebecca, and later married John Rolfe on April 5, 1614. A general peace and a spirit of goodwill between the English and the Indians resulted from this marriage.
In December 1607 while seeking food along the Chickahominy River, Smith was captured and taken to meet the chief of the Powhatans at Werowocomoco, the main village of the Powhatan Confederacy. The village was on the north shore of the York River about 15 miles due north of Jamestown and 25 miles...
Powhatan people wore very little clothing and young children went naked up to about the age of 10 or 12. Girls then wore a deerskin apron that only covered the front and left the buttocks bare. Since Pocahontas/Matoaka was about this age when she first met Smith it is likely that she wore such an...
Pocahontas major accomplishments
Her real name was Matoaka and sah received the English name Rebecca
Pocahontas was 12 years old when learned how to catch fish.
The title of "Princess" is a term that finds it roots in European political systems and not in Native American systems. To date there has never been a Native American [Indian] Princess.

Because she was interested in what they did there.
No, Pocohantas' mother died while giving birth to her

thomas rolfe. i think he was 13 when Pocahontas died of smallpox. . .
After Pocahontas saved John, they became friends. I don't think that they were lovers. Pocahontas may have had a little crush because she was 12 and he was an adult.
Answer . Yes, but why would you want to do that? Even though she has hurt you, there's really no need for you to retaliate in such a similarly mean fashion.
she had 10 brothers 20 moms and 9 sisters
"Pocahontas" is set in 1607, just as a new age of exploration has begun.
The story we know is not true. Actually the colonist landed in an area of 14,000 Native Americans and in the worse land in the area. Powhatan pretty much left them alone.

She had to risk her life in saving John Smith's life and she struggled with disease before she died. Seriously, I am just using my prior knowledge from the past, not the movies or books.

Pocahontas was a peace-maker between her tribe, the Powhatens, and the white men and saved the life of John Smith. because pocahontas brought peace and calmness to tribes
In reality (factual history) there is no tree associated with thereal personage of Pocahontas. In the fantasy movies and stories about her, her Grandmother is aWillow tree.
she was fun loving and loved animals
Well she managed to turn many many people into stone.
As far as I know Pocahontas was actually named Matoaka she was nicknamed pocahontas. She had saved the life of John Smith when she kept her father from clubbing him to death when she was about 10 or 11 years old.
Smith came to Jamestown in it's second year and did not " go to her land". Jamestown settled on an Native American empire of 14,000 people. They took the land with no respect for the people all ready living there. If the land hadn't been the worse in the area the men of Jamestown most likely would...
