I loved Pocahontas as a kid. It was the first movie I ever saw in a theater. I had a Pocahontas doll, she was on my inayopendelewa t-shirt, and I watched my trusty old VHS copy all the time. I live in the area and my family supposedly traces back to her tribe, so there was no doubt who my inayopendelewa princess was. And then, as I got older... I started doing a little research, and found out how incredibly fictional the movie was.

With each book on the Powhatan tribes I read, Disney's Pocahontas becomes harder to watch. I watched it again today for the first time in probably a year, for article-writing purposes, and spent most of the movie silently fuming. (There also may have been a few obscenity-filled outbursts and agonized groans.) Had this movie been completely fictionalized, there'd be no need for this article. But it is based on real people, and a real culture, and it fills the heads of impressionable youth with fiction they believe is fact.

I've seen some maoni here on fanpop about Pocahontas that fill me with an unbelievable rage. But I don't blame the fans; their opinions are based on a cartoon about a pretty young princess falling in upendo with...

It’s so hard to choose the right path.
If I choose wrong, I will feel my Father’s wrath.
He simply won’t understand,
And will insist that I do as he commands.
Deep down in my moyo I know that it’s right,
And I am willing to put up a fight.
I fell for a pale face.
The feelings I have can’t be erased.
I have shown him all the colors of the wind,
And he was finally able to comprehend.
We could have one adventure after the other.
I never want to be with another.
I told my Father I don’t want to marry Kocoum,
But he doesn’t know where I’m coming from.
I have to keep our two worlds from going to war.
They must know we don’t have to fight anymore.
I must create peace,
au the hate will just increase.
They have to see my side,
au else our upendo will be denied.

john and Pocahuntas
muziki kwa Alan Menkin & Stephen Schwartz who also did muziki for The Hunchback of Norte Dame & Enchanted ,Pocahontas is based on real events and it is Disney's 33rd feature length movie about a native indian who falls for an english sailor who arrives in Virgina in order to find dhahabu for Radcliff (the Vilian in the movie).Meanwhile Pocahuntas's father the Chief powhatan wants her to marry Kocumn . Pocahontas does not want this marriage, and asks the advice from a talking mti spirit named Grandmother Willow. Grandmother Willow tells Pocahontas to listen to her heart.

I personally liked this film as it was based on a true story and the relationship between Pocahuntas & John Smith is very powerful and affectionate as they begin to fall for each other . The muziki is brillant Jon Secada ft Shanice song at the end of the movie and Colours of the Wind kwa Vannesa Williams(Ugly Betty who could have imagined that she was a singer back in the good old days) . This film is very warm-herted and breathtaking and its a kind of film that wewe would watch again and again. Also Mel Gibson who voices John Smith also provides the imba voice too .wow he was brill.
