You’ve probably heard the name Pocahontas, and you might have seen one of the film adaptations about her. But in this BrainPOP movie, Tim and Moby give you the real story of her life--from her encounter with Captain John Smith to her marriage to tobacco planter John Rolfe. You’ll learn all about Jamestown, the first permanent English settlement in North America, and why it was such a risky venture. You’ll also discover why she risked her life to save an English settler, and how her friendship helped the colony survive its first, difficult years. Finally, you’ll learn why Pocahontas changed her name to Rebecca, and how she was greeted as royalty during her first trip to England. So turn off your “Colors of the Wind” cassette single, and watch this movie!
