    What's your take concerning the story of Pocahontas?

    Some historians believe that the story concerning Pocahontas saving John Smith from execution is not true. Some historians think that the story is true. Others think that the story about the attempted execution was really a mock execution or adoption ceremony. What do you think?

    You assume everybody knows why she's called Pocahontas. (I kinda like that name. It's right on!)

    Actually, I heard that the story is something Smith made up.

    FWIU it's generally considered anecdotal

    I've heard that as well. I guess it is hard to tell if Smith was telling the truth.

    My take on the story?

    Disney did it better than James Cameron, and I don't even like the Disney version.

    I love the Disney version. As a kid I always wanted to swan dive off a cliff into a river. But I'm a disneyphile (particularly for animation + parks, notsomuch for live-action), so there's not much I don't like.
