They put her on the US dollar coin! She played a massive part in the initial exploration of our country! Give the poor woman credit, Jesus.

Pocahontas was the one they made a Disney Movie about that was a load of crap.

Edited for spelling.

We were all at home listening to Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue.
