Program Description   The study of Pocahontas is an excellent exercise testing the strength of primary versus secondary sources. Factually we know very little about Pocahontas. These facts are often interwoven with myth and legend surrounding her life. Depictions of Pocahontas throughout time can reveal as much about the time they were created as they do about the Indian "princess".
Program Format   1. Introduction/Historical Background
2. Group Primary Source Analysis
3. Discussion
4. Conclusion
5. Questions and Answers
Objectives   Through discussion, reading, and examination of primary source documents, students will:
1. Use reading comprehension and context clues to discover which depiction of Pocahontas is from life.
2. Discuss some of the facts, myths, and legends associated with the life of Pocahontas.
3. Use critical thinking, reading, and writing skills to analyze primary sources and determine the ways in which these depictions reflect more about the times they were created than the life of Pocahontas.
4. Understand the facts that are known about Pocahontas’ life and the role that she played in the creation of the Jamestown settlement.
