Video: Man on the Street: Who Was Pocahontas? Pre-Wedding Thoughts

Vincent Schilling

On Saturday April 5, 2014, the 400 year wedding anniversary of Pocahontas to John Rolfe, was celebrated with a reenactment in Historic Jamestowne, Virginia. Surrounded by hundreds of onlookers, actors portrayed the wedding day to include Native actors as Powhatan Indians and a Pamunkey woman Wendy Taylor portraying Pocahontas.

In addition to the hundreds of onlookers, ICTMN’s Vincent Schilling was given a special seat to the event and was able to capture the comments of the crowd. In this segment of Man on the Street, Vincent Schilling asks – before the wedding event, that is… Who was Pocahontas?
