Comparing the Real Story of Pocahontas to the Disney Cartoon Interpretation
This 6 page report discusses the legend of Pocahontas (real name “Matoaka”) and compares the Disney animated movie version of it and her actual story. Was Pocahontas a brave young women who defied her father to save the life of the foreigner chief John Smith? Or is the story simply a myth, given new credence by the Disney Corporation that serves only to strengthen white Americans’ simplistic perception of good Indians and bad Indians? How has history been modified to make it more palatable as “entertainment”? Bibliography lists 4 sources.
