The True Story of Pocahontas is the first public publication of the Powhatan perspective that has been maintained and passed down from generation to generation within the Mattaponi Tribe, and the first written history of Pocahontas by her own people.


"This book is raw and surprising. I'm hoping that many people will pick up this book. I read and reread it every year because it pulls at my heart. It is tragic but it's the truth and you can feel that when you read it." ---Suzanne Rickel

Author Biography

Dr. Linwood "Little Bear" Custalow was born on the Mattaponi Reservation in West Point, the eldest son of Chief Daniel Webster "Little Eagle" and Mary "White Feather" Custalow. Early in life he was given the mission of learning the oral history of his tribe and of the Powhatan Nation as passed down by his father and his grandfather. Angela L. Daniel "Silver Star" has strived to learn and preserve the oral history of the Powhatan people so it can be passed down to future generations. The late Chief Webster "Little Eagle" Custalow honored Daniel by giving her the name "Silver Star." He encouraged her to learn and pass on the oral history of the Mattaponi.
