Pocahontas: Beyond the Myth

NITV December 18, 2017

The story of Pocahontas has been passed down through the centuries. Her relationship with John Smith has been characterised as a romance that united two cultures and created lasting peace. However, the life of this American Indian princess was anything but a fairytale.

Pocahontas: Beyond the Myth looks beyond the fiction and reveals the real story of Pocahontas, a tale of kidnapping, conflict, starvation, ocean journeys, and the future of an entire civilisation. Using expert interviews with authors, historians, curators and the current chief of the Pamunkey tribe (Pocahontas’ actual tribe), archival images and historical recreations, this program explores Pocahontas’ long lasting fame.
