Four hundred years after the 1617 death of Pocahontas in England, her image and legend live on. Using depictions of Pocahontas from across the centuries, Jamestown Settlement will present "Pocahontas Imagined," a special exhibition opening July 15 through January 28, 2018, that illuminates the reasons behind her enduring legacy as well as her impression on popular culture and art.

The renowned Powhatan Indian who befriended English colonists in Virginia in the early 1600s has been immortalized in art, song and story. Born about 1596, Pocahontas was the daughter of Powhatan, chief of more than 30 tribes in coastal Virginia. Several years after converting to Christianity and marrying Englishman John Rolfe, Pocahontas became ill and died at Gravesend, England, in March 1617.

Admission is $17.00 adults and $8.00 ages 6-12. Children under 6 are free.For information, call (757) 253-4838, or visit http://www.historyisfun.org/jamestown-settlement/pocahontas-imagined/.
