Pocahontas
By Jane Runyon
  

1      Caption: This portrait of Pocahontas was painted almost four hundred years ago by Simon Van de Passe.
 
2     Many stories have been told about a young Indian princess named Pocahontas. Disney Pictures even made an animated version of her story. Just which parts of these stories are true is a mystery. The tribes in the Powhatan Confederacy had no official written language. The only written account of the life of Pocahontas comes from English books and letters. It is believed by some historians that some of these accounts of the times might have been slightly exaggerated.
 
3     From what we have learned, Pocahontas was the daughter of Wahunsunacock, Chief of the Powhatan. It is believed that Pocahontas was just one of many children produced by the chief's many wives. Some sources believe that over twenty children were claimed by the chief.
