Regarding Pocahontas. The National Hall of Fame of Famous American Indians was established to recognize famous American Indians.
Many times Ta-hau-san, Satanta, Quanah Parker, Jose Maria, Black Beaver, Kickingbird, Ahpeahtone, and maybe Geronimo, as well as others, rode their horses over the grounds of the Hall of Fame many years ago. Several families come to wash their family member's bust and say a few prayers.
Also see . . . Wikipedia entry for Pocahontas. During a time when the colonists were starving, "ever once in four or five days, Pocahontas with her attendants brought him [Smith] so much provision that saved many of their lives that else for all this had starved with hunger."
