Who Played Poker With Pocahontas? (When John Smith Went Away)

sheet music

Pocahontas (1595-1617), the daughter of a Powhatan chief, is known for the story of saving the life of the English settler John Smith. Pocahontas and her story have inspired many appearances in popular history such as this piece of sheet music and Terrence Malick’s movie “The New World” (2005), among others. One noteworthy example is the Disney film “Pocahontas,” released in 1995. This movie significantly illustrated a strong and independent woman of color as a role model, and diverged from Disney’s typical princess movies, based on a historical figure rather than a fairy tale. The film received criticisms for distorting and whitewashing the past, yet was deemed a major box office success, receiving two Academy Awards. It won for original song, “Colors of the Wind,” and for best music, original musical or comedy score.
