"The American Indian is of the soil, whether it be the region of forests, plains, pueblos, or mesas.

In April 1607, when the English colonists arrived in Virginia and began building settlements, Pocahontas was about 10 to 12 years old, and her father was the leader of the Powhatan Confederacy.

According to Smith, he was laid across a stone and was about to be executed, when Pocahontas threw herself across his body: "at the minute of my execution, she hazarded the beating out of her own brains to save mine; and not only that, but so prevailed with her father, that I was safely conducted to Jamestown"
