Episode 11: Pocahontas

This week we examine Disney’s 1995 animated musical Pocahontas. We are joined by Vincent Schilling, Native American journalist, historical researcher and arts & entertainment editor of the Indian Country Today Media Network for a fascinating perspective on the little-known truth behind the story of Pocahontas and the early English settlement in Virginia

Below is the link to Vincent’s article; well worth a read.
