Pocahontas Coloring Pages
In 1607, a ship of British settlers of the Virginia Company sets sail to the "New World". On board the ship are Captain John Smith and the voyage's leader Governor Ratcliffe, who seeks to find large amounts of gold in the New World to assure a strong a position at the British court. The ship gets caught in a storm, and Smith saves a young, inexperienced man named Thomas from drowning. In the Powhatan Tribe in the New World, Pocahontas, daughter of Chief Powhatan, dreads being possibly wed to Kocoum, a brave warrior whom she sees as too "serious" when conflicting with her spirited personality. Chief Powhatan gives Pocahontas her deceased mother's necklace as a present. Pocahontas, along with her friends, the gluttonous raccoon Meeko and hummingbird Flit, visit Grandmother Willow, a spiritual talking willow tree, and talks with her of a possibly prophetic dream involving a spinning arrow, and her confusion regarding what her "path" in life should be. Grandmother Willow then alerts Pocahontas to the presence of the arriving Englishmen.
Governor Ratcliffe has a fortress built in a wooded clearing, naming it Jamestown, and immediately has the crewmen begin digging for gold. Smith departs to explore the wilderness, and eventually encounters Pocahontas. They quickly bond, fascinated by each other's worlds. The two end up falling in love, countermanding Chief Powhatan's orders to keep away from the Englishmen after Kocoum and other warriors engage them in a fight. Meanwhile, Meeko meets Percy, Ratcliffe's spoilt dog, and becomes the bane of his existence. Pocahontas introduces Smith to Grandmother Willow and avoids two other crewmen; however, Pocahontas' friend Nakoma discovers her relationship with Smith and warns Kocoum. Thomas also follows Smith, and both he and Kocoum witness the two kissing. In a jealous rage, Kocoum attacks and tries to kill Smith but is himself killed by Thomas. An enraged Chief Powhatan declares war on the crewmen, and Smith is to be executed at sunrise.
Thomas warns the crewmen of Smith's capture, and Ratcliffe rallies the men to battle as an excuse to annihilate the tribe and find their non-existent gold. A guilt-ridden Pocahontas visits Grandmother Willow's tree, where Meeko hands her John Smith's compass. Realizing Smith's compass was the spinning arrow from her prophetic dream, she is pointed in the direction of Smith, leading to her destiny. She successfully stops Smith's execution and convinces her father to cease the hostilities between the two groups. All parties accept gracefully, but Ratcliffe tries to shoot Chief Powhatan in anger with Smith taking the bullet. The governor is captured and arrested by the crewmen. In the end, Smith is forced to return home to receive medical treatment, with Pocahontas and Chief Powhatan's blessing to return in the future.
