Episode: Touching the Past

Touching the Past
For Chief Anne "Little Fawn" Richardson, Pocahontas is more than a legendary historical figure. Richardson can trace her own ancestry back to the 17th century, when her tribe, the Rappahannocks, were part of a vast domain ruled by Pocahontas's father. In this podcast, Richardson reflects on the clash of cultures between Pocahontas's people and the English settlers of Jamestown. Podcast produced and edited by Susan K. Lewis. Interview by Kirk Wolfinger. NOVA is produced by WGBH in Boston. Funding for NOVA is provided by ExxonMobil, David H. Koch, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, and public television viewers. To learn more, visit http://www.pbs.org/nova/pocahontas
