Sample text

She may have had other reasons to marry. Maybe she wanted a little more freedom. Maybe she wanted a home of her own. 30 Before the wedding, English leaders took Pocahontas to see Powhatan. They still hoped to collect ransom for her. It was March of 1614. Pocahontas had been a prisoner for almost a year. Two of Pocahontas’s brothers met them. But her father did not come. 32 Pocahontas was hurt. Was her father afraid of the English? Or did he just want to keep his guns? If Powhatan loved guns more than he loved her, she would stay with the English, she said.

33 Later, Powhatan sent a message to Jamestown. He said that Pocahontas could marry John Rolfe. And he would send the guns and corn the English wanted. He wanted his daughter to be happy, and he wanted to make peace with the English. Around this time, Pocahontas was baptized as a Christian. She was given a new name, Lady Rebecca. Rebecca’s teachers boasted that she had given up her beliefs for theirs. But no one knows what she thought. Rebecca may have held her Powhatan life close to her heart, even as she began an English life.
