Pocahontas and the English Boys

REVIEW Ø Pocahontas and the English Boys The captivating story of four young people English and Powhatan who lived their lives between cultures In Pocahontas and the English Boys the esteemed historian Karen Ordahl Kupperman shifts the lens on the well known narrative of Virginia's founding to reveal the previously untold and utterly compelling story of the youths who often unwillingly entered into cross cultural relationships and became essential for the colony's survival Their story gives us unprecedented access to both sides of early Virginia Here for the first time outside scholarly texts is an accurate portrayal of Pocahontas who from the age of ten acted as e. Pocahontas and the life in early Virginia When President Donald Trump called Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren as Pocahontas the native American leaders expressed concern as it was offensive and hurtful to their population Pocahontas was the daughter of Powhatan the chief of a kingdom that consisted of 28 tribes of Tidewater region of Virginia She first became acuainted with the colonists who settled in the Chesapeake Bay area in 1607 and fostered accord between her people and English colonists In 1995 Disney released an animated film a collection of fictional tales as love story between Pocahontas and colonist John Smith this is a romanticized version and a clear departure from the actual eventsIn this book NYU Professor Karen Kupperman focuses on the early history of Virginia illuminating on young Pocahontas life that was spawned by colonial settlers The author s style of writing combined with various Native American names of early Virginia is somewhat challenging to a casual reader but it is rewarding to know that this piece of American history is retold with passion for the fascinating life of Pocahontas and three English kids Thomas Savage Robert Poole and Henry Spelman In the early days of colonization they live in both tribal and colonial communities learning native American languages translating trade negotiations learning farming from native communities and teaching them to English colonists Learning communication skills acting as emissaries and surviving the harsh winters They were essential in the process of colonization of Virginia The English in charge in Jamestown Virginia believed that Pocahontas was not the same person when she grew up They were also suspicious of three English kids being radically changed by the native population They were bartered for food by the colonists and the natives accepted them since they were still young and malleable like unbaked dough As for as the kids and Pocahontas they experienced initial terror since they had to cross between two different cultures but they also saw natives as a well adapted community to the environment The colonists raged and starved because they could not cope with challenges of the new world The English kids saw competence and a culture in which status was earned rather than acuired They saw the reality behind the curtain of English claim of superiority As the colonists began to thrive after they learnt the farming techniues The speed of economic growth based on the realities of capitalism that was also essential to economics of Virginia The kids understand the operating style and expanding nature of the new immigrants This book looks at the early American history and the sacrifice the kids make in the new world Pocahontas travels to England and becomes acuainted with their culture The English also converts her to Christianity and use her as missionary to spread the New Testament among natives in Virginia The life of Pocahontas is fascinating to read we get a relatively unbiassed view of the events in the early American history

REVIEW Pocahontas and the English Boys

REVIEW Ø Pocahontas and the English Boys Missary for her father who ruled over the local tribes alongside the never before told intertwined stories of Thomas Savage Henry Spelman and Robert Poole young English boys who were forced to live with powerful Indian leaders to act as intermediaries Pocahontas and the English Boys is a riveting seventeenth century story of intrigue and danger knowledge and power and four youths who lived out their lives between cultures As Pocahontas Thomas Henry and Robert collaborated and conspired in carrying messages and trying to smooth out difficulties they never knew when they might be caught in the firing line of developing hostili. I love when authors can bring a little known event or in this case practice to life In the early days of the country colonists routinely traded young people with Native Americans sending them to live in the other s community The purpose was to have someone learn the language and culture of the opposing society so they could act as translators and go betweens in commercial and social interactions Young boys in their teens in particular were offered in trade as that age was considered neither child nor adult and the right age to learn a language and adapt to new customsMs Kupperman s book focuses on three English boys who were sent to live among Native Americans in and around Jamestown Virginia Thomas Savage Henry Spelman and Robert Poole Apparently none of them had a say in their fate as adults made the decision to both send them to America and to hand them over to Native Americans The fourth child the author examines is the well known young girl Pocahontas who first interacted with the settlers while still with her family and then eventually was taken to live among them going on to marry an EnglishmanBeyond the four main protagonists of the book Ms Kupperman broadens her scope to discuss the wider practice of trading people children prisoners indentured servants slaves between the differing factions that were settling North America including the Spanish In New England the Mayflower Pilgrims relied on Suanto a Native American from the Patuxet tribe who came to live with them in 1621 But these children with what the author calls fluid identities came to be mistrusted as their loyalties could not be pinned down and the information they gave was therefore suspect In the case of Pocahontas though her presence among the settlers in Jamestown was life saving as she brought her knowledge of agriculture with her allowing them to both feed themselves and grow a crop tobacco that had a high market valueThis was an interesting and immersive look into a practice that I knew nothing about Its examination adds depth to the story of the early colonizing of America I had the false impression that interactions between settlers and Native Americans were always negative and violent While that certainly became increasingly the case in the early years it s interesting to see how everyone was trying to work things out though the driving factor was usually the desperation of impending starvation the colonists and the need for hunting fishing and agricultural grounds the Native Americans While the unfamiliar names pile up and become daunting after a while a reader can just keep the author s main focus in mind and understand the thread of the story It would make a great companion read along with another new book Marooned Jamestown Shipwreck and a New History of America s Origin by Joseph Kelly

REVIEW Ø Pocahontas and the English Boys Ties While their knowledge and role in controlling communication gave them status and a degree of power their relationships with both sides meant that no one trusted them completely Written by an expert in sixteenth and seventeenth century Atlantic history Pocahontas and the English Boys unearths gems from the archives Henry Spelman's memoir travel accounts letters and official reports and records of meetings of the governor and council in Virginia and draws on recent archaeology to share the stories of the young people who were key influencers of their day and who are now set to transform our understanding of early Virginia. I loved this book It was a true learning experience for me The title is humorous and catchy while there are parts about Pocahontas most of the book seemed to focus on the boys Kupperman focuses on early colonial settlements highlighting some cultural aspects of both the English and the Native Americans while explaining how they came to understand each other and communicate They both sent representatives to live with the other while using trade as a means for both sides to better themselves Kupperman explains what is like for the boys sent to live with the Native Americans She also highlights Pocahontas While there are other Native Americans that live with the colonists their version of events do not exist What really interested me was the identity fluidity that existed at the time Very interesting book and topic
