We’ve all heard the stories of Pocahontas, the famous Native girl who fell in love with the dashing John Smith and threw herself on his body to save his life. We also know that that story,
along with the rest of the Disney version of her life, is simply not true. So, who was the real Pocahontas?
On May 21 at 6:30 PM, the Gonzales branch of the Ascension Parish Library will host noted historian Yvonne Lewis Day who will fill us in on the real life of the mythical Pocahontas, and her
surprising connection to Louisiana. For more information, or to register, please call 647-3955.
