I am grateful I was able to learn to read and write so well. I am sure I was the best in my class; my teacher awarded me this journal many years ago. I write in this journal and track all the events of my life. Today is a wonderful and warm day; I can sit here and write. I grew up on the river Potomac. Not everyone from my tribe could read or write English. I was able to learn because of my friend Pocahontas, her father is our chief and many of our villages respect and listen to him.Pocahontas is the child the chief is specially fond of. The chief thinks so much of her that once when she was 10 or 12 the chief was going to kill a white man named John Smith. Pocohontas flung herself over him and begged her father not to kill him. After her father spared him, Pocahontas and I would go to James Town and play with the children, that is where I met Anna. Anna is one of my friends now. she taught me to read and write. I told my parents that I would be able to help with trades among the white men and they allowed me to learn. Pocahontas was tricked and kidnapped by the white man. The white man sent a message to the chief to release prisoners and return some tools and Pocahontas would be returned unharmed. When the chief returned the prisoners, and some tools, Pocahontas was not returned because the white man said not all the tools were returned.Pocahontas, I learned was also upset her father did not come with the party sent for her. I was told she wanted to stay and marry a Mr. Rolfe. I was also told that Pocahontas was baptized, to become a christian and changed her name to Rebecca before she married Mr. Rolf. I will marry Tohacin; he is a brave, and very strong. . The white man thinks of Pocahontas as a princess, because she is the chief's daughter. I think it is so funny that the white man dose not know our ways. Pocahontas was never going to rule our land. If the chief dies, the right of leadership will go to his brothers, and then to his sisters, if they all die the rights to leadership will go to his oldest sisters children.After Pocahontas married Mr. Rolf, we all had a year of peace between our tribes and the white man. It did not last long, and many of our braves were lost in battle. Many of the braves who were not lost in battle, developed these strange rashes and many of us died from the strange illness. Tohacin was very brave he lost many in his family, but he survived, he is a good husband. Our tribe heard strange talk of trade between a place called Britan and the white man. These two sides fought all over the land we farm, hunt, fish, and lived on. They wanted us to move to one side of the Mississippi, or the other. I thought this maybe a good idea to get away from all of their fighting and we could come back home after we followed the buffalo, I hoped they would be done by that time. When we moved, we were told we could no longer return. We now have to stay on this one section of land, it is not very good. This was a very bad idea, as we...
