Remembering the woman known as Pocahontas and the myths surrounding her down to the present day

This collection of essays is the first of its kind to focus exclusively on the woman known as Pocahontas. Contributions from established leaders in the field offer innovative perspectives on the life of Matoaka/Pocahontas, especially on the creation and perpetuation of her cultural image in the seventeenth century and beyond—and on how new archival research, interdisciplinary methodologies, and contemporary creative practice challenge that image. The chronological scope of this collection, compiled in honor of the late Monacan poet and historian Karenne Wood, illustrates the ongoing legacies of colonialism as they relate to recurring representations of and by Native American women.
