    This book was incredibly BORING! The majority of the information in this book could have been left out! I would say about 1/4 of it is actually about Pocahontas and her life. The rest was politics. I was able to glean a tiny bit of historical information relevent to my family, so that was interesting/5(3). Pocahontas, meaning "playful one" (her real name was said to be Matoaka), used to visit the English in Virginia at Jamestown. According to the famous story, she saved the life of the captured Capt. John Smith just as he was about to have his head smashed at the direction of Powhatan.

    The name Pocahontas is a girl's name meaning "playful one". Seen from one vantage point, Pocahontas is a name that will please no one. It's sure to invite playground mockery, and some will accuse parents without Algonquin ancestry of cultural appropriation. In certain circles, the Disney movie still stirs up bad blood.   Yet, as it turns out, Native Americans have passed down stories of Pocahontas orally over the past years—as detailed in Daniel’s book—and these frequently contradict Smith.

      Legends have grown up about her, books have been written about her, she has been depicted in paintings, and she has been awarded the ultimate accolade of any storybook princess - Disney has made a film about her. But she was a real person, and her name was Pocahontas. How Popular is the name Pocahontas? Pocahontas is th most popular name of all time. How many people with the first name Pocahontas have been born in the United States? From to , the Social Security Administration has recorded babies born with the first name Pocahontas in the United States. That's more than enough people.
