Pocahontas's Vision Quest

Virginia - 1616  Pocahontas's Vision Quest unveils the lifestyle of Eastern Native American tribes.  Their language, customs and traditions are explored.  Before Pocahontas sets off on her vision quest, her father, Chief Powhatan insists she prepares properly.  A Native American folktale is shared, as well as the friendship dance with John Smith (and the entire audience).  Student participants harvest the planting mounds (corn, beans and squash), and Pocahontas's "brothers and sisters" test their bravery in a bat-filled cave.  She then plays a creative imagination game with her tribesmen before she departs on her quest. 

Pocahontas - is an historic Native American youth of the Powhatan tribe.  Her attire is comprised of leather skins, complete with moccasins, beads, fur and feathers.
