36B-Pocahontas: Between Two Streams

Myths and Legends

An abbreviated history of Pocahontas and John Smith, this episode looks at the conflict largely from the Powhatan side. This isn't the Disney version. It is gritty, dark, violent, and, if Mattaponi oral history is to be trusted, fairly disturbing. Still, it tells the story of a clash of worlds, and one woman who stood in the middle to bring a brief peace.

The creature this week lives in lime trees and, in return for probably not paying rent, will hurt you if you're mean to the tree.
