In this video segment adapted from NOVA, explore the popular story of how Pocahontas, a young Native American, fell in love with John Smith, an English colonist. When Smith was captured, Pocahontas risked her life to save him, and then continued to help his fellow colonists at Jamestown. Thanks to her, the colony not only survived, but thrived. As the video states, it's a powerful story, but how much of it is true?
