Sex Fact #136

Historians say Pocahontas was 10 to 12 when the British arrived in 1607. They say she was not svelte, but quite robust. And she was NEVER romantically involved with Captain John Smith, who would probably have been in his mid-30's when they met.

Robert Eaglestaff, principal of the American Indian Heritage School in Seattle, sent an E-mail message to teachers across the city following the release of the Disney version of the Pocahontas tale: "Educators, please be aware of what Disney is promoting in their release of 'Pocahontas.' They are promoting racism, rape and child molestation."

Mr. Eaglestaff pointed to an account of the relationship between Smith and Pocahontas, said to be in Smith's diaries, in which Smith raped and impregnated Pocahontas.
