Her True Story

Streaming Video - 2013
Rate this:
As the tale goes, Pocahantas, age 12, saved the gallant John Smith from the "savages" in her tribe. The relationship blossomed into love, and Pocahontas went with Smith to London, where British society undoubtedly perceived her as an exotic creature. This program holds that legend up to historical scrutiny by examining questions such as: How gallant was John Smith? Who were these so-called "savages"? How could Pocahontas, from a culture with strict hygienic standards, possibly have tolerated Smith's Elizabethan aversion to bathing? And, what of her marriage to John Rolfe? Interviews with Pocahontas' descendants provide a new perspective on the life and times of this revered Native American heroine.
