Matoaka, known by her nickname Pocahontas, was the daughter of Powhatan, a chief who led a confederation of thirty Algonquin tribes. Pocahontas's pleas for the life of Captain John Smith, the military leader of the Jamestown Colony, have been the subject of myth and fantasy for centuries. Students will learn of her imprisonment by white settlers, her conversion to Christianity, and her life in England as a married wife and mother. Native American customs and life within Pocahantas's tribe are also explored.
