Pocahontas, daughter of the great chief Powhatan of the mighty Tsenacommacah nation pleas with her father to spare the life of Captain John Smith and allow him and the other migrants to remain in the land. The Chief respects his daughter's wishes, believing she must be right. After all Pocahontas, is a recent graduate of Know-it-all University in his nation's capital at Werowocomoco. Thus began the assimilation of the white man into the American Indian Nation. Or to put it another way, the Native American's first step toward the reservation.
