She was the favored daughter of the Chief of the Powhatan Indians, and a girl in motion; always laughing, teasing, and dancing. But from the moment John Smith and the colonists of Jamestown set foot into her world in 1607, her life would change forever. She soon became an ambassador and peace keeper between the Powhatan and the colonists. Because of her curiosity and courage, Pocahontas became the bridge between the two worlds.

Four hundred years after this world-changing clash of cultures, the true story about America's original "Founding Mother" is finally revealed. Reunited for the first time since "Wilma" "Unlimited," Kathleen Krull and David Diaz deliver a visually stunning, fascinating birth-to-death account of this true American Princess.
