The life of Pocahontas


Pocahontas was a native princess at the time of colonial America. She helped save Jamestown in a couple ways. One way she helped bring peace between the natives and colonists was she helped them learn how to grow crops. At the time, Jamestown had horrible soil, and nobody there knew how to farm. She taught them how to keep their crops alive. In this way, she helped them grow as a town. Another way she helped them was by saving John Smith from her father. After a peaceful meeting between the natives and John Smith went wrong, Pocahontas saved John Smith, a leader of Jamestown, from being clubbed to death by her father. This helped Jamestown, and ultimatley colonial America, because Jamestown was the first colony. After saving John Smith, she traveled to Henricus. There, she met John Rolfe who she married and had a child with. As a gift of marriage, Cheif Powhatan, Pocahontas's father gave them thousands of acres of land, which they made a tobacco plantation on. Disney has made a movie about this native princess, shown in a picture above.
