Welcome to The Pocahontas Project! This blog was created by ten students at Northwestern University as part of a class project for Native American Literature. In this blog we have attempted to display multiple facets of the story of Pocahontas; from the Mattaponi oral tradition, to the story told by John Smith, to the story displayed in the Disney movie version. As students, we are just trying to uncover the past and determine how culture has manipulated and reappropriated the truth. If there are any problems, please comment on them and we’ll respond and get them fixed!
Thanks a lot for your readership.
