Pocahantas

Ever heard of Pocahontas? In my view, she is one of the original missing and murdered indigenous women cited by history. The tale that Disney puts forward has mostly been debunked. Pocahontas never saved John Smith. The real story is that she was only about 9-years-old when John Smith arrived and actually had a Native husband and a child at the age of about 16. Because John Smith was brutalizing Native chiefs and stealing food at gunpoint, the settlers began to fear retaliation. They knew having Powhatan’s daughter would guarantee their safety. As a result, they kidnapped her, indoctrinated her, baptized her as Rebecca and married her off to John Rolfe. ~Indian Country
