Pocahontas: Fact vs. Fiction

After Disney's Pocahontas was released, the Powhatan Nation was furious that the real story of Pocahontas was distorted in the name of entertainment. (See the Powhatan's letter here.) After exploring the different resources on Pocahontas, do you agree with the Powhatan in believing that Disney should not have portrayed Pocahontas incorrectly? Why would Disney have changed the facts in the first place? Give evidence from at least one source to support your opinion. (Post as ANONYMOUS, using first name, last initial and class period only!)
