Pocahontas: Her Place in the Emerging Atlantic World and Nascent United States

Tue Nov 19, 2pm
Presented by: Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian
Official website

Pocahontas lived and died not only in the maelstrom of the English–Powhatan encounter in the early 17th century, but at a singular moment in world history. She participated in the newly emerging Atlantic world. Her legacy helped shape Europeans’ conception of that world and the United States’ conception of itself for centuries. Why and how so? 

This presentation by National Museum of the American Indian curator Cécile R. Ganteaume explores what we know about Pocahontas and her early impact on European and American thought.
