The True Story of Pocahontas: Historical Myths Versus Sad Reality
In , Disney released an artistically beautiful animated film showing the supposed events that unfolded between John Smith and Pocahontas. However, this depiction is a far departure from the actual events that occurred, and from the real life of Pocahontas. Disney produced a romanticized and inaccurate portrayal of the life of Pocahontas. It is believed that Pocahontas was born around to a Powhatan chief. Her given name at birth was Matoaka, although she was sometimes called Amonute.
Disney and some other versions of the Pocahontas story depict the Englishmen John Smith as a man who falls in love with an Indian princess.

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. Born about , her real name was Amonute, and she also had the more private name Matoaka. Pocahontas was the favorite daughter of Powhatan, the formidable ruler of the more than 30 Algonquian-speaking tribes in and around the area that the early English settlers would claim as Jamestown, Virginia. Years later—after no one was able to dispute the facts—John Smith wrote about how she, the beautiful daughter of a powerful native leader, rescued him, an English adventurer, from being executed by her father. This narrative of Pocahontas turning her back on her own people and allying with the English, thereby finding common ground between the two cultures, has endured for centuries.
