Chief Powhatan

Powhatans turned John Smith back during expeditions for gold, & even captured him.

Smith would have died if Pocahontas, Chief Powhatan’s daughter, had not intervened.

The Jamestown settlement had many conflicts with Natives in the area, resulting in deaths of settlers.

Relations with the Native Americans improved after John Rolfe married Pocahantas.

Native Americans taught settlers to grow native crops such as corn, beans, and squash.
