Join the Virginia Museum of History & Culture for our upcoming webinar, Pocahontas: Her Life and Legend. The study of Pocahontas is an excellent exercise testing the strength of primary versus secondary sources. During this hour-long webinar, students will examine historical evidence of six episodes of her life that are recorded by English settlers, and compares those accounts to the mythology created after her death, when artists manipulated her story to support causes that they wanted to advance.
