Since 1607, white men from English came to America, Verginia.Indians and Engish men try to become friends but gradually Powhantan, Pcahontas's father and king of Virginia indians, become want guns and scare English men.The war began.On the other hands Pcahontas fall in love with John Smith who is one of the English men.I love the Desney movie story of Pocahontas, but real story of her is very different from Desney.I can learn real story of indians and English men.Pocahontas's love is very sad, but I think she is very strong woman, I love her.
