facts about pocahontas

Pocahontas is one of the most famous Native American women in history, and with a wonderful Pocahontas costume inspired both by the famous Disney movie as well as traditional Native American designs, it's easy to get a look that your or a loved one will find perfect for a night of costume parties, trick-or-treating, and much more! Pocahontas was also known as Matoaka and Amonute, and was notable for her association with the colonial settlement at Jamestown, Virginia. She was the daughter of Powhatan, the paramount Native American chief of the area. She saved the life of colonist John Smith in 1607 – when she was likely only eleven years old – when her father was moments away from executing him. 

During hostilities, Pocahontas was held for ransom in 1613, and during that time she converted to Christianity and took the name Rebecca, and when the chance came for her to return to her people, she chose to remain with the colonists. She married tobacco planter John Rolfe in 1614, and in 1616 she traveled to London, where she became something of a celebrity. She died in 1617, at the age of 20 or 21, and was buried in St. George's Church, Gravesend, in England.

pocahontas disney movie

The Disney version of the movie is much more famous in most people's minds. As in real life, Pocahontas was the daughter of the paramount chief of the area, Powhatan, and she again interacts with colonist John Smith, though for the most part the similarities end there. She is voiced by – and modeled after – Native American actress Irene Bedard – and Broadway singer Judy Kuhn provided her singing voice. 

The character is made to be a confident and strong woman, unlike previous heroines Ariel and Belle, who were more childlike and naive. In the movie, Pocahontas meets and falls in love with John Smith – voiced by Mel Gibson – before her tribe and Smith's village become broiled in a deadly and dangerous conflict. Just like in real life, Smith is moments away from execution by Powhatan, until he is saved by Pocahontas. There are numerous embellishments from the original story, but the main details remain the same. The filmmakers worked with Native American groups to make sure they portrayed the details of the Native American tribes, the history, their culture, and even outfits were real and fair, in contrast to the inaccurate and comic portrayals from Peter Pan.
