Descrizione
Pocahontas (Matoaka, and later known as Rebecca Rolfe, c. 1595–1617) was a Virginia Indian notable for her association with the colonial settlement at Jamestown, Virginia. Pocahontas was the daughter of Powhatan, the paramount chief of a network of tributary tribal nations in the Tidewater region of Virginia. In a well-known historical anecdote, she is said to have saved the life of an Indian captive, Englishman John Smith, in 1607 by placing her head upon his own when her father raised his war club to execute him. The Story of Pocahontas and Captain John Smith, first published in 1906.
