Inspired by:

Pocahontas might be a household name, but the true story of her short but powerful life has been buried in myths that have persisted since the 17th century.

To start with, Pocahontas wasn’t even her actual name. Born about 1596, her real name was Amonute, and she also had the more private name Matoaka. Pocahontas was her nickname, which depending on who you ask means “playful one" or “ill-behaved child.”

The story of Pocahontas still has importance in today’s social climate and she remains a strong virago woman in nearly all young indigenous girls lives.
