For four centuries, Americans have adored her as a romantic fairy-tale heroine. But who was the real Pocahontas? As the nation’s birthplace marks its 400th birthday, this film presents an illuminating new view of this legendary figure and offers a first-hand look inside the recently discovered sacred village of Werowocomoco (“Place of Chiefs”) in present-day Virginia, where the longhouse in which Pocahontas first met the colonial leader John Smith in 1607 is being unearthed.
