The real Pocahontus

Disney movies are a great source of entertainment for a dreary and wet Saturday.
Today's pick was, as you can probably guess was Pocahontus. While the kids were enjoying the film, I looked it up on Google. I was hoping to find some free colouring pages for the afternoon, but instead I found out that Pocahontus actually existed. 
Her story though is far different than the Disney film and well worth reading on Wikipedia. 
Her final resting place isn't actually too far away in Gravesend, Kent. 

It's tempted me to do some Native American inspired crafts and activities this week with the children.  I feel some Pinterest browsing coming on.
