American Heroes #3

Pocahontas (1595?–1617) was a legendary Native American princess who, at the age of about eleven, may have saved the life of English explorer Captain John Smith.  She was a brave, compassionate girl who later helped the colonists by bringing them food. Without her, Smith claimed, the English would not have survived.  She inspired a rare peace between two nations with her vision of cooperation between the European settlers and her own people.  Distinguished ambassador, peacemaker and trusted friend, her legacy lives on with the survival of a colony that led to the birth of a nation.

I was captured by Algonquin warriors.
Taken to the Indian King.
Brought forth in a crowded longhouse.
She sat, listening.
Thrown down on my knees, they bound me.
I gasped for my final breath.
She rose, threw her arms around me,
Saving me from certain death.
The braves were pacing.
My heart was racing.
How would I survive?

Pocahontas, Pocahontas
Saved my life that night!
Pocahontas, Pocahontas
Saved my life that night!

One cold winter I returned
To Werowocomoco.
She rushed to my hut concerned
With secrets I must know.
Stern whispers and teary eyes
Warned me of a night attack.
I left ‘ere the moon could rise,
Gave thanks, and safely made it back.
I do confess her thoughtfulness
Kept this man alive!


Chief Powhatan’s daughter
Secured my release --
This Princess of friendship and peace.
